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. 

[Third Coast Percussion is] Impressively combining creative fearlessness with reverent precision.
— BBC Music Magazine

Sergio and Odair Assad have moved audiences and inspired guitarists around the world for over 30 years with revelatory performances of Latin American music and European classics, original compositions, deep musicality, and supple, almost telepathic, guitar duo performances.
— San Francisco Classical Voice

Clarice Assad is quite simply a phenomenon who has streaked across the world's musical landscape like one of those comets that appears just once in a lifetime.
