Presented in association with Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concerts.
Self-described “NYC based pan-American roots” band Matuto (Brazilian slang for “country boy”) beautifully embraces Brazilian forró rhythms and incorporates American bluegrass with varied instrumentation. This performance will feature new works written and performed by youth in collaboration with Matuto as part of Carnegie Hall’s Musical Connections program. Drawing through-lines from South America to the Southern U.S., Matuto is sure to get your feet moving across the BRIC House Ballroom dance floor.
Lead support for Neighborhood Concerts is provided by the Howard Gillman Foundation.
BRIC House is Brooklyn’s cultural living room: a 40,000 square foot multi-disciplinary arts and media complex in the former Strand Theatre, where emerging and established artists can create work that deepens their practice and engages the diverse communities of the borough.
