Hermeto Pascoal

Hermeto Pascoal

Hermeto Pascoal is a musician with a unique talent for imposing the remarkable on the everyday. A virtuoso accordionist, flautist and pianist, Pascoal has often preferred to use unconventional instruments — from carpets, chairs, kitchen utensils and body parts – to create his extraordinary music. In a career spanning six decades, he has solidified himself as one of Brazil’s most prolific, eccentric and treasured musicians, with a hyper-varied and comprehensive body of work that makes any attempt at classification seem largely insubstantial. On this tour he will premier new commissions scored for the distinctive instrumentation of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. Hemeto Pascoal will perform with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra on Friday 29 April 2022 at the Guildhall Derry. Tickets coming soon!
