One of Brazil's most talented performers, Badi Assad is known for her heartfelt vocal style and her talent for Bobby McFerrin-like improvisation, often using her own body as a percussion instrument. This skill makes a live show from Assad a special treat -- you know you will hear a one-of-a-kind performance. In addition to her singing, Assad is known for her talent on guitar. In 1995, she was voted Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitarist by the editors of Guitar Player
, and her album, Rhythm
, was voted Best Classical Album of the Year by the magazine's readers. She has recorded both original interpretations of other musicians' songs and written some of her own songs. Her most recent release, Wonderland
was inspired by Alice in Wonderland
and was selected as one of BBC London's best albums of the year. Assad will be joined by special guest Paulinho Garcia, the award-winning Brazilian jazz musician who now makes his home in Chicago.
