School of Music students, instructor to perform berimbau in Brazil

berimbauThe NIU School of Music is home to some of the most unique instruments from around the world, and Associate Professor Greg Beyer has taken it upon himself to bring prominence to one of those instruments through contemporary music.

“What we’re doing with the berimbau is unique,” he said. “There are a few other berimbau ensembles—in Brazil and Portugal—but their music by and large hews close to capoeira traditional music.”
