Hailed by The New York Times as "a Brazilian carnival crossed with Lower East Side performance art . . . wild, vivid entertainment," Cyro Baptista's Beat the Donkey is more than just a band. It's a multicultural, polyphonic, genre-defying ensemble that blends a bewitching stage stew of untamed percussion, tap dance, martial arts, samba, jazz, rock, funk, and sometimes even the kitchen sink. Keep your Mardi Gras going with this wild, unstoppable party.
