It’s a musical marriage of ‘Guitars and Saxes’ this week on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch as we showcase several of each.
Six-string electric, seven-string acoustic, or the four-string ukulele (which here is called the cavaquinho), right down to the single-string twang of a Brazilian berimbau, the musicians who play these instruments are elemental to the nation’s natural sound, no matter what the style.
On the other hand, the saxophone is not ‘native’ to Brazil. It’s a relative newcomer to the land of Samba and Sun, but it didn’t take long for the horn to catch on, with dozens and dozens of sax stars to brighten up the Brazilian night. In fact, for nearly a dozen years now, saxophonist Leo Gandelman has carried the award-winning title of Brazil’s Best Instrumentalist.
Three full hours to indulge with The Warmth of Brazil
From guitarist Torcuato Mariano to reedman Jorge Continentino, here’s a show you won’t want to miss!
I’ll also bring you another classic song from Connectbrazil.com’s recently named ‘Album of The Year’. You’ll hear it midway through our second hour.
