Madeira must be a good place for mandolins – at the moment there are 17 mandolin orchestras and tunas on Madeira. Activities of those orchestras can be found on the website of the Associacion de Bandolins de Madeira http://www.bandolins-madeira.net/
A group of four players with mandolin, mandola (octave mandolin), guitar and bass has arranged some popular rock songs by Metallica, Toto and R.E.M. and has made several videos in their youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/cromandolin
