Concert | Nação Zumbi / Nation Beat’s Carnival Caravan featuring Cha Wa
Twenty years ago, one of the most important groups in Brazil launched its first record, Da Lama ao Caos. The debut album by Chico Science &amp; Nação Zumbi was a milestone for a group of friends, that by creating a scene, started a movement that ultimately destabilized the axis of musical production in Brazil. Their second album, Afrociberdelia, was launched in June 1996, but in less than a year, the band – and the world – would lose their front man Chico Science. Despite the huge blow, it wasn’t the end. Nação Zumbi reestablished itself and ever since has reinvented themselves year after year, and album after album. Having released six studio albums, Nação Zumbi brings manguebeat to life, and continues to be one of the most influential and respected Brazilian music bands today. Carnival Caravan is a new collaborative touring concept featuring Brazilan-American group Nation Beat and New Orleans band Cha Wa. The goal? To incorporate Brazilian, New Orleans and related music, dance and art into a show that explores the cultural exchange between North and South America. Nation Beat’s Scott Kettner and Cha Wa’s Joe Gelini met in New Orleans on Mardi Gras Day in front of Big Chief Monk Boudreaux’s house awaiting the Golden Eagle Tribe. As Scott and Joe paraded with the Golden Eagles to the legendary corner of Second &amp; Dryades they began a musical dialogue that became the inspiration for this musical collaboration. Its no surprise that even though they were playing instruments and rhythms from separate continents, the message was the same. It became clear there was a musical and cultural connection that was understood without words.

Titus Andronicus is famously Shakespeare’s bloodiest play with the highest body count and the Warehouse does “blood” very well. General Titus Andronicus returns to Rome with the Goth Queen Tamora. He has her eldest son, Alarbus, sacrificed to the gods in the name of his fallen sons. This bloody act releases in Tamora a revenge that knows no limit. The ones closest to Titus become the targets of her rage and not even Titus is safe.

The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.
