RHYTHM, RHYTHM: ANDREW J. NEMR

I had never heard about Andrew J. Nemr before February 2010.  This unassumingly dressed young man was part of the audience at a Cangelosi Cards concert at the Shambhala Meditation Center — and someone invited him to come forward and join the band.  He had no instrument but put a wooden board, painted flat black, on the floor . . . and proceeded to dazzle us:

Here’s Andrew in duet with Gordon Au in 2011:

Andrew and friends — make that Friends — will be presenting three concerts on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 20, 21, and 22, at Aaron Davis Hall (the City College of New York).  The concerts begin at 7 PM; the doors open at 6:30.  Admission is $15 per person; students with ID get in for $10.  You may purchase tickets here.   And here’s  the event’s Facebook page.

One of the highlights of the concert programs will be Andrew’s recreation of Bill Robinson’s famous Stair Dance — but there will be marvels and feats of dance that no one has yet imagined.

May your happiness increase.
