Brazil’s Badi Assad is lauded as one of the world’s most unique and cross-transcendental performance artists of this generation. She transcends traditional styles of her native Brazilian music with a mixture of pop, jazz and world/ethnic sounds from around the world. As a result, the extraordinary singer, guitarist, and percussionist is successfully forging an exhilarating genre of music that quite literally defies categorization.
Badi Assad will be at the Amazing Things Arts Center on Oct. 23. Showtime is 7 PM. Tickets $10-$20.
