September Concert: Arcomusical

Thursday, September 13th

7:30 PM

 

Our popular concert series returns! Each month we will have a different musician or band playing live music right here at your library! Relax and listen to artists playing a variety of music in this special, after hours event. No registration is necessary and each concert is 100% free! This month we will be featuring Arcomusical.

Arcomusical’s mission is to spread the joy of the Afro-Brazilian berimbau musical bow. Although the berimbau is a well-known instrument in Brazil, most people in the United States are not familiar with its elegant beauty and simplicity. And people remain largely unaware of the diverse family of instruments to which the berimbau belongs. Musical bows are the most popular and widespread traditional string instrument found throughout sub-saharan Africa, and the berimbau made its way to Brazil via the transatlantic slave trade. The berimbau’s closest relatives are found in southern Africa, and specifically in the Portuguese speaking countries of Angola and Mozambique. This concert promises to be a one of a kind experience. We hope to see you there!

Thursday, September 13th at 7:30 PM. No registration required
