He’s recorded and performed with legends like Trey Anastasio, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Phish, Sting, Yo-Yo Ma, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Santana and more. His own ensemble is a wild, unstoppable world beat percussive band that blends untamed percussion, tap dance, martial arts, samba, jazz, rock and funk. Working in the Brazilian Anthropofagiaartistic movement, the group mixes international instrumentation and unusual percussion inventions of Cyro’s own creation. The musicians hail from all over the world, wear wild costumes and frequently leave their instruments to break into spontaneous dance. An unforgettable experience, led by an equally unforgettable artist!
As part of this performance, Cyro and his band will perform "Sounds of the Community," with a goal of involving people of all ages and abilities for an inclusive project that provides widespread, community collaboration. These community performers will have rehearsals all week with Cyro and his band and will join them on stage for part of the public performance.
