The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is proud to present multi-Grammy Award-winning Brazilian legend MILTON NASCIMENTO in his Arsht Center debut during his Uma Travessia (A Crossing) World Tour. As part of the Center’s 2014-2015 Live at Knight series, the iconic singer-songwriter will wow South Florida fans with a concert celebrating his 50th anniversary as a renowned world music artist and an array of classic hits from his album Uma Travessia on November 26, 2014 at 8 p.m. in the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall.

Tickets to MILTON NASCIMENTO are $35, $55, $75, $95 and $125* and may be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722, or online at http://www.arshtcenter.org.

“We are thrilled to welcome one of Brazil’s national treasures to our stage and look forward to celebrating his golden anniversary in style,” said John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. “Attracting audiences worldwide for more than five decades with his inimitable jazz and folk sounds, MILTON NASCIMENTO’s performance is sure to resonate with Miami’s multicultural community and beyond.”

Undeniably one of Brazil’s greatest stars, MILTON NASCIMENTO is an extraordinary artist whose transformative early work fusing Africanized jazz with Latin-American folk allowed a generation of artists to free themselves from bossa nova.

Since his debut, Nascimento’s magnetic stage presence and astonishing tonal range have delighted audiences for the better half of a century. He has recorded more than 30 solo albums, received four Grammy Awards, and collaborated with elite musicians the world over, including Herbie Hancock, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, James Taylor, Duran Duran, Sarah Vaughan, Esperanza Spalding and countless others.

Versatility has been a hallmark of his career, but it was his 1974 performance on Wayne Shorter’s Native Dancer that brought Nascimento to the attention of jazz audiences in the U.S. and Europe. 40 years later, his extraordinary lyricism and originality are still strikingly present, and his voice remains a marvelous instrument shaded with stunning emotional power. With a seasoned vocal palette, he expertly crescendos from stage whisper to roar.

The monumentally influential artist celebrates a 50-year career with his latest album and world tour, Milton Nascimento – Uma Travessia, featuring classic songs in his repertoire. His band includes Wilson Lopes on guitar, drummer Lincoln Cheib, bassist Gastão Villeroy, Kiko Continentino on piano, and Widor Santiago on sax.
