Virtuoso guitarist and singer Clay Ross traveled from South Carolina to New York to Brazil, developing an entirely unique sound that blends Native American folk songs with South American rhythms. Together with New York's master forro ambassador Rob Curto, he formed the six-member band Matuto (a Brazilian slang reference to a man from the backcountry) that includes jazz percussionist Richie Barshay, bassist Michael Loren Lavalle, pandiero player Ze Maricio, and violinist Maz Swift. The band is the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright grant and its second CD, The Devil and the Diamond, was just released on the Motema Music label. The 7:30 pm set is "The Devil and the Diamond"; the 9:30 pm set is "The Africa Suite." The works are presented in collaboration with the US State Department Artists Abroad program.

Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
