Flamenco Vivo/Carlota Santana
NYC's Asphalt Orchestra redefines and re-contextualizes music from the concert halls, rock stages, and jazz clubs of the world -- and brings it to new audiences in a way never heard or seen before. From galvanizing outdoor performances to trailblazing uses of the concert hall and indoor spaces, this 12-piece band of New York's hottest brass, wind and percussion players brings together a wide swath of music into one breathtaking show.
With major performances under their belt ranging from Lincoln Center Out of Doors to the Barbican Centre London, Asphalt Orchestra released their debut recording on Cantaloupe Music in 2010. Dressed by Elizabeth Hope Clancey and choreographed by Susan Marshall and Mark DeChiazza, Asphalt Orchestra is an utterly unique experience.
Asphalt Orchestra's shows feature music by pop wizard Björk, jazz legend Charles Mingus, rock progressive Frank Zappa, Brazilian iconoclast songwriter Tom Ze, Zimbabwean provocateur Thomas Mapfumo, and Swedish metal band Meshuggah. Also featured are new pieces written for the band by David Byrne and Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Yoko Ono, Goran Bregovic, Tyondai Braxton (Battles), and Stew and Heidi Rodewald (Broadway and Spike Lee's Passing Strange).
