Formed with the late Klaus Dinger after their stint in Kraftwerk, Krautrock pioneer Michael Rother’s influential 1970s art band NEU!’s moody instrumentals unleashed dark tunings and off-kilter motorik rhythms that later surfaced in the music of David Bowie and Sonic Youth—whose drummer Steve Shelley joins him and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) in the first live presentation of this music in more than 35 years, along with material from Rother’s Harmonia and solo work.

A visionary musical sorcerer, Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal continues to be a force of nature, pursuing jazz-based experimentalism heightened by the grace he brings to the whimsical.

Hermeto Pascoal presented with support from the Consulate General of Brazil in New York and in cooperation with Americas Society. For more information visit http://en.brazilny.org
