Cyro Baptista & the Banquet of Spirits: Sounds of Community

Cyro Baptista & the Banquet of Spirits: Sounds of Community

“I don’t even think of him as a percussionist, because he is so much his own personality that it almost transcends any percussion instrument he could be playing.” – Yo-Yo Ma

One of the premiere percussionists on the planet, Cyro Baptista leads his winsome quartet on a virtuosic trek through myriad musics of the world. Washed out surf rock splashes, blazing hardbop solos, breathtaking West African harping, exquisite Brazilian rhythms — the sounds all coalesce into a carnivalesque stew of joy and irreverence as these four astonishing players draw on sounds and instruments from around the globe to create utterly unique combinations.
