Kenneth James Higgins III & claudio kron do BRAZIL


Thursday 20 April @ 7 Arts

After outstanding popular demand, the unstoppable force of Kaleidoscope returns to Seven Arts. A unique and original blend of Brazilian, Jamaican and African roots music, funked up percussion and deeply hypnotic grooves. This is a unique collaboration between Leeds based Jamaican roots bassist Kenny Higgins and master percussionist, Claudio Kron do Brazil. Kenny uses electric bass, effects and real-time loops alongside Claudio taking up a vast range of traditional and recycled instruments, producing original rhythms influenced by the music of Brazil and Africa.

Kenny's stunning accuracy and vivid, soulful playing makes it no surprise that he has gained a reputation as one of the most inventive and sought after bass-players in the UK.

Claudio is an artist of international acclaim. With countless performances across many continents, his bold approach to percussion has turned heads for over 30 years. Employing traditional and recycled instruments, with rock solid rhythm, there is no percussionist quite like Claudio.

Their combined talents are something to behold. Prepare to be transported!
