The group has existed for more than eight years now and had some spectacular performances during the last years. The played with singer Dona Onete and with guitarist Sebastiao Tapajos in a show named O Terruá Pará, and you can find several videos from this show at youtube.
They always play in a beautiful outfit, using dresses with flowers, dresses in different colors or all in red. It’s fun to watch and listen to O Charme do Choro.

I have compiled a new playlist with Hamilton de Holanda and listened to this great Brazilian bandolim player during the last weeks. Hamilton plays alone, with piano or with bigger ensembles. He plays his 10-strings bandolim which has become very popular in Brazil during the recent years.
Hamilton plays traditional choros, Brazilian Jazz and many of his own compositions. He is a fantastic, creative musician and composer, and he is travelling around the world with his music.
Enjoy the music of Hamilton de Holanda!
