Barbatuques makes show debut in New York
Barbatuques in the International Body Music Festival. The IBM Festival is organizing, on August 12, in New York, a great exhibition of the oldest music in the world: body percussion. “The song which can be seen and the dance which can be heard”. The Brazilian group Barbatuques, considered a world reference in this modality, is performing one more time in the Festival and will give workshops on the subject.
In this edition of the IBMF, it will presented the first joining of the Brazilian group with north Americans Slammin All-Body Band, that even representing different styles of body music, intend to find parallels to a great collective performance.
Idealized and realized by the pioneer, Keith Terry, the event will reunite about 3 thousand people at Lincoln Center. It is the first time that it will be held in New York City, the other editions of the Festival took place in San Francisco, the production is of Crosspulse organization from California and Trouble Worldwide.
The next edition of the International Body Music Festival will also be new, because it will be held in São Paulo, in Brazil, with production of the Barbatuques Nucleus. The initiative is resulted from the partnership and interchange of experiences that have been going on for 3 years between Keith Terry and Fernando Barba. This will be the first experience in a foreign country.
