Badi Assad

In October 2006 The Shedd Institute was hit between the eyes by an extraordinary, almost other-worldy force. In February 2016 she is back. It will an evening to be no where else. Brazilian singer, guitarist, and percussionist Badi Assad (pronounced bah-jee Ah-Sahj) transcends traditional styles of her native Brazilian music with a mixture of pop, jazz and world/ethnic sounds from around the world, forging in the process an exhilarating genre of music that defies categorization. What makes Badi Assad so unique is her hungry pursuit of performance experimentation that no other artist has done: She combines an extraordinary guitar talent, a unique mouth percussion, beautiful singing, combining a rhythmic body movement, to create an exciting, fresh music sound, and leaving spectators breathless.
