Add to Calendar 02-08-2013 02-08-2013 15 A Tale of Two Nations: Maracatu Nacao Estrela Brilhante and Nation Beat / Big Chief Monk Boudreaux & the Golden Eagles Nation Beat, American fans of northeastern Brazilian percussion, went down to Recife more than a decade ago, to jam with legendary, Maracatu Nacao Estrela Brilhante. Their collaboration, with its driving beats, call-and-response vocals, and Afro-Brazilian pageantry, blew the minds of mainstream rock journalists and die-hard Brazilian music fans alike. Now, the traditional maracatu crew is making its first trip to the U.S., touring with Nation Beat as A Tale of Two Nations. More than just music, maracatu features vibrant, intricate costumes, high-energy movement, and Afro-diasporic street theater, complete with colorful stock characters. Joining the revelry will be Big Chief Monk Boudreaux & the Golden Eagles, Mardi Gras Indians whose artistry has strong parallels to maracatu. With dazzling costumes that reflect both African and Native American origins, and with a funk and brass sound that dares listeners not to dance, Boudreaux and crew will both parade and lay down the grooves in a raucous stage set. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136821 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
