Archetypes: Sérgio Assad, guitar | Clarice Assad, piano & vocals | Third Coast Percussion
Archetypes explores the universal symbolic archetypes that appear in stories, legends, and myths throughout the world—great floods, creation, paradise, apocalypses—as well as characters that appear in stories across cultures. Expressing themselves through guitar, voice, and percussion quartet, the ensemble will explore global musical traditions taking the audience on a vast musical journey grounded in familiar stories.
Archetypes bind all of us together through our shared connection to these fundamental aspects of the human experience. In storytelling, an archetype can be a character, a setting, a theme, or it can even be a particular outcome. This may explain how some stories can sound almost identical, even if they originate from vastly different cultures across the globe and feature characters and settings that are in complete contrast with one another.
