The NMSU Arts and Sciences Cultural Series continues with Nation Beat at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7 at the NMSU Music Center's Atkinson Recital Hall. At the heart of Nation Beat lies the merging of Afro-Brazilian beats with New Orleans second line rhythms, Appalachian-inspired bluegrass music, funk, rock and country-blues. They are the first American group to record in Brazil with the legendary Mestre Walter and Maracatu Našao Estrela Brilhante, and they are the first Brazilian band to perform with Willie Nelson, who called Nation Beat "just a fantastic group." Nation Beat plays with an audacious energy and seamlessly bridges folkloric Brazilian rhythms with classic American roots music.

Tickets are $10 for NMSU students with a valid Aggie ID and $15 for the general public and can be purchased at the Pan American Center Ticket Office or online at http://bit.ly/N3oLG9.
