Projeto Arcomusical is a world music sextet reimagining the Afro-Brazilian berimbau through a repertoire of unique, powerful, original concert chamber music. Projeto Arcomusical formed in 2013 specifically to interpret MeiaMeia, the collaborative composition cycle co-composed by ensemble members Gregory Beyer and Alexis C. Lamb. A CD recording of MeiaMeia is now available on Innova Recordings. The ensemble has a myriad performances to its credit, highlights including: the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, universities and theaters in the United States, and capoeira schools and festivals of contemporary music in Brazil.

“Projeto Arcomusical doesn’t miss a beat. The sextet is so tuned in to one another that at times it becomes difficult (if not impossible) to tell where one instrument ends and another begins. The players are so precise, so blissfully engaged with their instruments and one another that the individual pieces and the individual players melt away, and you begin to discover the uniquely captivating character of the instrument itself.”
