Projeto Arcomusical, led by percussionist Gregory Beyer, will perform a free concert on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. in Bezanson Recital Hall.

Projeto Arcomusical will present a program of powerful and original chamber music featuring the berimbau, one member of the “bow” family of musical instruments found broadly throughout southern Africa and specifically in the Portuguese speaking countries of Angola and Mozambique.

The performance is part of the ongoing Arcomusical Project, a non-profit organization that advocates the artistic advancement of the Afro-Brazilian berimbau and related musical bows.

Formed in 2013, Projeto Arcomusical is comprised of Beyer, Alexis C. Lamb, Kyle Flens, Daniel Eastwood, Raychel Taylor and Ethan Martin. The group has performed at venues around the U.S. and on three continents, including the Chicago Ear Taxi Festival and a three-week Brazilian tour in 2015.

The concert is free and open to the public.
