20 Legendary World Festivals To See In Your Lifetime

The Americas Society cordially invites you to a rare solo performance by Brazilian jazz legend Egberto Gismonti.
 Legendary Brazilian jazz multi-instrumentalist and composer Egberto Gismonti opens the MetLife Music of the Americas 2014 fall concert series at the Americas Society with a rare solo performance at Peter Norton Symphony Space on Friday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Gismonti, widely recognized as one of Brazil’s most influential musicians, has a five-decade career that spans from jazz to music for film, theater, and ballet.

His work reflects the musical diversity of Brazil, from the Amazon Indian batuque to the Carioca sambaand choro, through the Northeastern frevobaião, and forró. Presented in collaboration with Savassi Festival NY, the concert will include Gismonti’s original compositions from his more than sixty albums.

From a musical family, in which his grandfather and his uncle were bandleaders, Gismonti started to take piano and theory classes at five. At that time, he also started to learn the flute and the clarinet, eventually taking up the guitar in his teens. Following the piano classical tradition influenced by his father, he embraced the guitar to please his Italian mother, who was very fond of serenades. In order to transpose the piano’s polyphonic quality for the guitar several years later, he created three custom-made instruments (10-, 12-, and 14-stringed guitars) and developed his own two-hand technique.

Over the years Gismonti has collaborated with an extraordinary range of musicians including Naná Vasconcelos, Jan Garbarek, Colin Walcott, Ralph Towner, Charlie Haden, Jaquinho Morelembaum, Nando Carneiro, and Zeca Assumpçã. As a businessman, he owns the successful label Carmo, which has several joint ventures with ECM. His latest albums are the two-disc Saudações, which features one disc of his seven part composition Sertões Veredas—Tributo à Miscigenação and a second disc of guitar duets with his son Alexandre Gismonti (which was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” upon its release in 2009), as well as Magico, a compilation of previously unreleased performances with saxophonist Jan Garbarek and bassist Charlie Haden.

Admission Fee: FREE for Americas Society members. Non-member tickets may be purchased in advance: $30 general admission; $25 Symphony Space members; $15 for seniors and students. Day of performance: $35.

Have you ever heard of The Green Turtle? He’s only the world’s first Asian-American super hero

 Meet “the Green Turtle.”

Not the toughest name for a crime fighter. Plus his costume leaves little to the imagination:

But make no mistake: The man will hurt you.

And according to Angry Asian Man, he’s the first Asian-American superhero in the history of global comics. He first appeared in Blazing Comics in 1944.
