Brasilian Vibes is a new, exciting main stage band.

Lipner and Assis released "Brasilian Vibes" in 2010, which was nominated for "Album Of The Year" by the Brasilian Press Awards and this group is an outgrowth of five years of gigs to develop that band concept. Their positive energy connects with the crowd from the first note until after the performance when they parade a Samba into the audience and jam amongst the dancing crowd! READ MORE...

Talking Sticks is a one-hour documentary filmed in Ghana, Mexico, Norway, Brazil, Iceland and USA.

The film tells the untold story of marimba and vibraphone. Their history, relationship to music and cultures, and manufacturing are all explored in-depth through location footage and interviews. Arthur is the journeyperson in the film. Along the way, he plays a stone marimba in rural Iceland, in the streets of Rio De Janeiro during Carnival, makes an ice xylophone high on the mountains of Norway, and much more. READ MORE...
