The Luciana Souza Trio with Cyro Baptista at Modlin Center 

Monday, Feb. 8.

Luciana Souza, Romero Lubambo and Cyro Baptista all have played the Modlin Center, but this time the exemplary performers take the University of Richmond stage together. On one level it's a natural collaboration. All are from Brazil, a diverse country roughly the size of the continental United States with a rich musical heritage that combines canny poetry, lovely melodies and rhythms within rhythms. The poetry will be supplied by the multi-Grammy-nominated Souza, a graceful singer with a seemingly effortless sense of lyrical beauty. Her singing will be complemented by the fleet and adept guitar work of Lubambo, who accompanied Souza on her last Modlin visit. Baptista is the wild card. One of the world's leading percussionists, he's an ebullient, endless force of nature. His last Richmond appearance — with his joyously humorous “Beat the Donkey” ensemble — was the exact opposite of Souza's sophisticated restraint. Catch the contrasts Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. $17-
