Hamilton de Holanda – The great Brazilian Bandolim Player…

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!

Discover the Music of Brazil – Brazilian Music Day…

On Sept. 7, 2012 the Brazilian Music Day was organized by the ARChive of Contemporary Music:

The Archive of Contemporary Music has called for participation in the Brazilian Music Day and has organized and collected all kinds of events about the music of Brazil.

As the result the special Brazilian Music day Website was launched. This website offers a great resource to find information about Brazilian music. It contains a huge list of Brazilian artists, websites, blogs, radio stations – almost everything that deals with Brazilian music can be found on this site.

In the special youtube channel many playlists of Brazilian artists have been created. I have dicovered the following Brazilian band among those playlists – a fantastic band with cavaquinho and cavaco banjo:

Grupo Revelação – Tá Escrito (Ao Vivo no Morro)

During the last days I have updated the page about choro and Brazilian music on my website. I have updated the links and added some new topics, including a list with some podcasts and playlists with choro music:

Talentos – Trio Hamilton de Holanda (10-string mandolin), Marcos…

Trio Hamilton de Holanda, Marcos Suzano e Jaques Morelenbaum

A TV show from Brazil with Hamilton de Holanda (bandolim), Marcos Suzano (pandeiro and percussion) and Jaques Morelenbaum (violoncello).

Hamilton de Holanda is one of the best bandolim players from Brazil. For this show he is accompanied by cello and percussion. I like the possibilities of this group very much. They play compositions of some famous Brazilian composers like Dorival Caymmi, Baden Powell, Egberto Gismonti and others.

O Talentos registrou show histórico de lançamento do trio Hamilton de Holanda (bandolim 10 cordas), Marcos Suzano (pandeiro e percussão) e Jaques Morelenbaum (cello). Os três gravaram CD ao vivo em Brasília, em dois dias de gravação. No repertório, Dorival Caymmi, Baden Powell, Egberto Gismonti e outros grandes compositores brasileiros.
A ideia nasceu em uma participação especial de Suzano em um show do ‘Hamilton de Holanda Quinteto’ em Curitiba. A parceria se concretizou no Festival de Jazz de Barcelona no final de novembro de 2008 e depois seguiu para Itália e França. O resultado foi tão elogiado que os músicos resolveram gravar um CD juntos. No início de 2009, em um encontro casual pela cena musical carioca, Morelenbaum juntou seu tempero ao duo, formando o trio. “O trio é de uma nacionalidade única, nunca vi esse tipo de formação, dá um ineditismo, e isso é bom pra gente, é bom para o público”, vangloria-se o maestro.
