“Mr. Assad’s phrasing is highly personalized, with extreme rubato and articulation so varied as sound almost improvised.”—The New York Times

Enjoy the opportunity to hear the great Brazilian guitarist, Odair Assad, of the world-famous Assad Brothers duo, present his individual voice in a rare New York solo recital. To hear the Assad Brothers is always a joyous experience; to hear one alone is a singular treat. The program takes you on a musical tour of Latin America, from the Brazilian jazz-pop songs of Garôto to Piazzolla’s Argentine nuevo tangos, including recent pieces by Gismonti and Brouwer written for Odair Assad.

This recital begins 92Y’s series co-presented with SubCulture, located on Bleecker Street. Come for the daring and eclectic music, and stay for a relaxed drink during the concert or at the bar.
