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.
