CROSSPULSE and the INTERNATIONAL BODY MUSIC FESTIVAL present BODY MUSIC — a touring concert of traditional and contemporary Body Music artists from around the globe.
From tundra to tropics, people snap, clap, step and sing artful music. BODY MUSIC ignites audiences with music you can SEE, dance you can HEAR.
Kecak, Hambone, Zapateo, Saman, Stepping, Throat-singing, Beatbox — it's the oldest music on the planet, and it's brand new.
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR KEITH TERRY, pioneer of contemporary Body Music, brings you a deeply visceral, cross-cultural conversation that only the world's oldest instrument, the body, can reach.
