VTech, Mochilla + ArtDontSleep present:
part 3 of the Timeless series featuring Arthur Verocai LIVE with 30 piece orchestra. DJ sets by Madlib & DJ Nuts
- Sunday 7pm – 11pm @ Harriet and Charles Luckman Fine Arts Complex
“Timeless” is an homage to the arranger /composers that have influenced hip-hop in the most literal and profound ways. Hear what happens when these two worlds come together.
Brasilian folk-jazz innovator Arthur Verocai is recognized for having created challenging arrangements and compositions for prolific artists Jorge Ben and Gal Costa- however, he is most admired for his eponymous debut album, released in 1972 during Brasil’s repressive military regime. Its psychedelic string-oriented music places Verocai in the same rarefied field that Charles Stepney and David Axelrod inhabit. The entire album will be performed live for the first time.
“Arthur Verocai is living proof that soul transcends generations, races, and creeds. If you are a producer and don’t know who this guy is… then you don’t know soul music at its best… Welcome to Brazillian Soul… meet Arthur Verocai” – 9th Wonder
“I could listen (Arthur Verocai) album everyday for the rest of my life” – Madlib
“Arthur Verocai is a genius, one of the finest” – Quantic
“Em 1972 falaram que ele estava maluco… sua musica é agora.” – DJ Nuts
