Projeto Arcomusical returns to National Sawdust to celebrate the release their second album, Spinning in the Wheel. The album will be available on March 8th, 2019 on National Sawdust Tracks.

Spinning in the Wheel includes some of the ensemble’s finest playing to date on excellent compositions by Elliot Cole, Alexis C Lamb, Kyle Flens, and Gregory Beyer. These works not only display Arcomusical’s vision for where the tradition of the berimbau is going, they also pay respect to that tradition’s origins. Compositions such as Cole’s “Roda” and Beyer’s “Traíra” pay homage to the historical and current berimbau playing of capoeira Mestres Gato Preto, Traíra, Rogério, and Moraes, as well as to the pioneering musical voice of famous Brazilian percussionist, Naná Vasconcelos.

Projeto Arcomusical worked closely with Dan Nichols and Aphorism Studios, Inc to capture the very best audio quality, and with Evan Chapman and Kevin Eikenberg of Four/Ten Media to deliver unbelievably beautiful videos.

Gregory Beyer, Artistic Director

“Projeto Arcomusical doesn’t miss a beat. The sextet is so tuned in to one another that at times it becomes difficult (if not impossible) to tell where one instrument ends and another begins. The players are so precise, so blissfully engaged with their instruments and one another that the individual pieces and the individual players melt away, and you begin to discover the uniquely captivating character of the instrument itself.” — Maggie Molloy, Second Inversion, December 5, 2016
