Central Park SummerStage Postpones Bobby Womack & Willis Earl Beale Show, 6/7
Central Park SummerStage's June 7th show with Bobby Womack & Willis Earl Beale Show has been postponed due to illness. This show will be rescheduled for mid-July with both artists still on the bill.
Central Park SummerStage's first free show will now take place on June 9th as Inffinito will present Cine Fest Brasil at SummerStage with a live performance by boTECOeletro and a full screening of the new Raul Seixas documentary film, RAUL.
After two years of research, the musician Ricardo Imperatore joined Brazilian folk music, samples, drumming, loops and acoustic instruments together to create the fusion that is boTECOeletro. Composed from fragments of "Jackson do Pandeiro", the Baianas Mensageiras de Santa Luzia, Radames Gnatalli and mixes created by Imperatore, Botecoeletro was awarded the "Premio Tim de Musica 2005" in the category of "Best Electronic Album of the Year".
Raul Seixas is known as an icon of Brazilian Rock and developed a unique musical style that emphasized the maverick and the mystic. His body of work consists of twenty-one albums and numerous collaborations with then fellow mystic, and future worldwide bestselling author, Paulo Coelho. Director Walter Carvalho, an experienced cinematographer unveils RAULthrough rare images from archives, family encounters and discussions with artists, producers and friends, documenting the life and public image of one of Brazil's most controversial and important rockers.
