Since arriving in the US in 1980 from his native country Brazil,
Cyro Baptista has emerged as one of the premier percussionists in
the country. During his Spring-Summer 2017 Residency, Baptista
is working with Buffalo sculptor Shasti O’Leary Soudant and
UB students on the creation of a unique sculpture/percussion
instrument to be installed in the Percussion Garden at Artpark.
