I have recently discovered the videos with a duo named Raiz Latina. The duo is composed of Irina Aleksandrovskaya brazilian ten-string mandolin and Saden Ferganiy seven-string flamenco guitar.

The duo plays Brazilian Choro music and also Spanish music arranged for 10-string bandolim and guitar.

I have not found more information, but the videos are great to watch.

Danilo Brito (Bandolim) and André Mehmari (Piano) – Complete…

Danilo Brito is one of the best bandolim players in Brazil. He has performed together with Mike Marshall and other American mandolin players. Now I have found the following concert which he gave together with piano player André Mehmari. The program was composed of compositions by Ernesto Nazareth, Garoto or Zequinha de Abreu, and also some compositions by the two artists.

Its difficult to describe the music, it’s a mix of Brazilian Choro, classical music, with influences from Portuguese Fado musica and maybe also some influences from Jazz.

Playlist Danilo Brito (bandolim) and André Mehmari (piano)

Bandolim e piano se encontram no duo formado por Danilo Brito e André Mehmari, que pode ser definido como música pura, arte e emoção. Ambos compositores e com sólida carreira nacional e internacional formam o duo que combina suas peculiaridades e suas semelhanças, com uma sintonia única. No repertório, Amoroso de Garoto, Floraux de Nazereth e Branca de Zequinha de Abreu, além de composições dos dois artistas.

Enjoy this fantastic concert with Danilo Brito and André Mehmari!

Nordic Choro – Nordic songs in Brazilian choro style

Jarmo Romppanen has just recorded a new CD with his band Nordic Choro. Instead of playing the Brazilian repertoir Nordic Choro have arranged nordic songs in the style of Brazilian choro – a great idea!

Nordic Choro have started a campagin to raise the money for the production of the CD. They have presented their project in several videos  – I have compiled the new videos in my playlist below. My first impression of the recordings is very good – so I am very curious to get the finished CD.
