Body Music in Boston: Closing Concert

Event Date: 
Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 8:00pm

Boston - The International Body Music Festival, Wellesley College Music Department, and Berklee College of Music present, for the first time in New England, a week of unparalleled events with artists from Brazil, Bali (Indonesia), Las Canarias (Spain), and the U.S., featuring traditional and contemporary music made by the oldest instrument on the planet – the HUMAN BODY.

From the tundra to the tropics, artists from around the globe will snap, clap, step, and sing artful music you can see and dance you can hear Body Music comes to Boston for a series of events culminating in this final concert. Artistic Director Keith Terry, pioneer of contemporary body music, offers a deeply visceral, cross-cultural conversation that only the world’s oldest instrument—the body—can reach.

The Wall Street Journal says the result is “like visiting an anatomical carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps, and mouths engage in an endless musical ballet.” A question-and-answer session will follow the performance.
