Under the Beams Concert: Nation Beat

April 2, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15 – $120

Jazz-infused, funkified New Orleans-meets-Brazil brass & percussion

Reserve your tickets now for this live concert at the incomparable Murphy Auditorium in New Harmony.

Forró. Funk. Brass. Pounded by calloused hands; blasted by tight grooves. It calls across time and continents – with a response from hips and feet. It’s the force that blew through Louis Armstrong in the twenties. It’s the power that gets Brazilians swinging in the streets for carnival.

Nation Beat singularly conjures up this elemental musical mojo, drawing on the wellsprings of rhythm that lit up jazz and got maracatu thundering. Nation Beat takes off with be-bop-via-Brazil drumming; propelled by percussive bursts of New Orleans-flavored brass. But forget the musical history; this is music to make you dance. Nation Beat’s live shows have taken on an almost mythological aura for their ability to lift the souls, and the feet, of their growing cross-cultural audience. Band leader, drummer/percussionist Scott Kettner continues to be at the forefront of merging different musical elements together with cross-cultural explorations where brass band and percussion explode in a jazz-infused, funkified New Orleans-meets-Brazil carnival sound.
