Thievery Corporation, the Washington, D.C. based space-rock/trip-hop collective released their seventh studio album titled Saudade last year via the group’s own ESL Music imprint, a release that saw the band return to their Brazilian-inspired bossa nova roots with help from enthralling vocal contributions from singers Lou Lou Ghelichkhani, Karina Zeviani, Elin Melgarejo and Natalia Clavier.
Led by multi-instrumentalists and co-founders Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, the Grammy-nominated assembly were recently on the east coast for a string of sold-out engagements, which included a mega packed showing at Terminal 5 in NYC on December 11. Boasting an array of special guest vocalists; Sleepy Wonder, Puma Ptah, Mr. Lif, Rootz and Zeebo, the band engaged The Big Apple with a 20-song setlist consisting of fresh tracks like “Claridad,” “Firelight” and “Depth of My Soul,” as well as classic hits like “Le Monde,” “Lebanese Blonde” and the night’s final song, the fan-favorite “The Richest Man in Babylon,” which saw the stage flooded with energy.
West coast DJ The Bins aka Clark Barclay kicked off the night with his unique blend of tunes derived from a variety of genres and cultures, as heard on his 2015 debut EP Every Minute of the Day.
