On Friday October 21, 2016, the Linda Pace Foundation will host a night of fun and music in collaboration with KRTU 91.7FM-Trinity University featuring a live performance by Brazilian musical group MENTE CLARA in CHRISpark. In addition to musical entertainment, we will also be premiering Rivane Neuenschwander’s second video installation in a series of three to be exhibited throughout the duration of the Secondary Stories exhibition, titled Inventory of Small Deaths (Blow).
Mente Clara combines soaring melody, sophisticated jazz harmony and the danceable rhythms of Northeastern Brazil into a sound that is all their own. Straddling the line between jazz, world music and fusion, the band has toured from coast to coast, developing a reputation for exciting live shows along the way. Their second album, Forrozêra, was released on June 2, 2015, and has been praised for its “dynamic rhythmic attack.” (Dave Sumner, Bird Is The Worm)
