Cyro Baptista

Grammy-award winning percussionist Cyro Baptista and his 7-piece percussion orchestra, Beat the Donkey, present a musical, dance, and visual event like no other. Beat the Donkey is a literal translation of the Brazilian expression "Pau Na Mula" which, loosely translated, means "let's take it up a notch." Beat the Donkey's rhythmic performances are in the vein of Stomp and Blue Man Group -- intense visual interaction and heavy beats. Band leader Cyro Baptista has gained international recognition by performing with such artists as Paul Simon, Sting, Trey Anastasio, Herbie Hancock, Yo Yo Ma, Dr. John, David Byrne, and numerous others.
