See you around…

Brazilโ€™s Badi Assad is one of the most innovative, passionate and talented artists of all times and is lauded as one of the worldโ€™s most unique and cross-transcendental performance artists of this generation.Quicksilver guitar work and vocal percussion along with sweet and stirring singing are Badiโ€™s trademarks.

Badi cracks open the unexpectedly lyrical quality and deep sentiments of the popular songs that Badi always chooses to explore,arrange, and make her own.

Assad will give New York’s audience a chance to experience these songs (by Hozier, Skrillex, Bjรถrk and more), that comes from her latest release ‘Hatched’, and as well as her own compositions, LIVE, when she comes as a solo performer to Joe’s Pub on July 31st @ 7pm, as part of the Brazil Summerfest.
