Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Grammy-winning Third Coast Percussion has forged a unique path in the musical landscape with virtuosic, energetic performances that celebrate the extraordinary breadth of musical possibilities in the world of percussion. They are joined by the father-daughter Brazilian duo, Sérgio and Clarice Assad on piano, guitar and vocals, for a performance of a new work, Archetypes. This vast musical journey, grounded in familiar stories and global musical traditions, explores universal symbolic archetypes and ­characters from stories, legends and myths throughout the world. The percussion quartet — praised for “commandingly elegant” (The New York Times) performances and “an inspirational sense of fun and curiosity” (Minnesota Star-Tribune) — will also premiere a new work by electronic musician, composer and producer Jlin (Jerrilynn Patton), known for her fiercely original beats.

They play as if they’re a single, eight-armed organism.
