Cyro Baptista's Vira Loucos
October 14, 2010
Brazilian born Cyro Baptista is one of the premiere percussionsits in the world today. His credits read like a veritable Who's Who of modern music; he has toured extensively with Yo-Yo Ma's Brazil Project, Tery Anastasio's band, John Zorn's Electric Masada, Herbie Hancock's Grammy award winning Gershwin's World, Sting and Paul Simon's Rhythm of the Saints. In this new project, Vira Loucos, Baptista and his incredible band play music by or inspired by his fellow countryman Heitor Villa-Lobos.
