“Simply ingenious... undeniable... provocative, powerful and deeply enjoyable." — All Music Guide
This Brazilian-born percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and singer is best known for being one of the great artists in the Tropicalia style of Brazilian music. Cyro Baptista's credits read like a "Who’s Who" of modern music. He’s toured extensively with Yo-Yo Ma's Brazil Project, Trey Anastasio, Herbie Hancock's Grammy award-winning "Gershwin’s World,” Sting, James Taylor, Bobby McFerrin, and Paul Simon's "Rhythm of the Saints.” Banquet of the Spirits is his homage to world music, and he’s assembled a magnificent band and a stage full of very unusual instruments. He’s a funny, warm, charming, and incredibly accomplished presence, and we are honored to welcome him to Lane.
