Which nation, and which beat? What makes the American/Brazilian collective Nation Beat special is that it offers no simple answers. They are rhythm gatherers, harvesting the fruit of 500 years of cultural crossbreeding, which is why the sounds of the northeast of Brazil and the southern United States blend together so seamlessly; NPR's All Things Considered music writer Banning Eyre calls them "the most original and alluring fusion group I have heard in years."
This show is free, but space is limited and reservations are strongly encouraged.
