Milt Hinton Jazz Perspectives Series Matuto

October 6, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$16 – $36

Matuto’s Seductive Philosophical Trip through Brazilian Beats and Southern Roots:

In Brazil, Matuto is slang for Country Boy, but this NYC based group of urbanized virtuosos is emerging as one of the world’s hottest international touring acts. Recently awarded the title of “American Musical Ambassadors” by the U.S. State Department, Matuto has been hailed as “seductively cross cultural” (Chicago Tribune), and praised as “the height of world music sophistication” (Sun Times).

Matuto’s songs can sway hips just as easily as spark insights. On stage, the instruments swirl together, bobbing in and out, whirling around the tension at the core of Matuto’s music: the push and pull between the Latin syncopations of Brazilian music and the folk traditions of the American South. It’s Bluegrass meets Brazil. It’s an unlikely combination on paper, but on the dance floor, it just feels right.
