MDM Percussion Grooving featuring Nabiyah Bashir
Saturday, November 3 at 10 p.m.

MDM Percussion Grooving takes Brazilian music to a new frontier. Experimental, yet rooted in a deep foundation of native rhythms, Bahia expatriates – Meia Noite, Dende and Marivaldo – create a syncopated sonic brew of samba, reggae, rock electronic and tribal funk beats. Nabiyah Bashir soars above with powerhouse vocals delivered with soul and nuance.
