From serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and booty shaking, an evening with Poranguí is sure to be a memorable one.

Born in Brazil to a Brazilian mother and Chicano father, World Soul artist Porangui was reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. and steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. He has over 15 years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.

Porangui masterfully weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the world as a one-man orchestra. His infectious grooves move the body while soulful harmonies uplift the spirit, pulling away the invisible barrier between performer and audience. Immerse yourself in sacred sounds that transcend cultural and stylistic boundaries to deeply heal as you integrate mind, body and soul. Journey through deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves into high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats, and return to still point with blissful African kalimba lullabies.

Come, ground yourself, listen and let yourself be moved and experience this world-class artist in a one-of-a-kind performance from his sacred studio space. Your best headphones or speakers are a must!

ASU Kerr is a historic Valley venue that is part of ASU Cultural Affairs. Our small staff and facility strive to present a diverse mix of live music, storytelling and theater in order share the unique perspectives of local, national and international artists. World music, indie folk, jazz, soul, baroque pop and more grace our stage each season. We currently produce free live streamed events to give greater access to music and storytelling programs, providing performance opportunities for artists and maintaining the connection between ASU Kerr, audiences, the arts and one another.

We are shouldering unprecedented costs in creating paid performance opportunities for artists that are free to the public during the venue's temporary hiatus. As a self-sustaining venue, our only income streams are ticket sales, rental bookings, concessions and the contributions of donors.

Consider helping sustain ASU Kerr with a donation to the venue. We are doing our best to bring the joy of music and the arts to you in new ways, and hope those able to financially support the venue's mission of Connecting Communities™ will do so. Your help is vital in ensuring that the shows will go on--online for now--and in person once it is safe for us to gather again.
