Waldir Azevedo – Master of the Cavaquinho – Roda…

The last four editions of the radio show  “Roda de Choro” of the Brazilian Radio MEC were dedicated to the music of  Waldir Azevedo. This is a great chance to download almost three hours of music by Waldir Azevedo, with recordings from 1957 until 1979, as the radio shows are available as podcasts.

Waldir Azevedo was one of the most important composers of choros in Brazil, he has composed the famous tunes Brasileirinho, Delicado and Pedacoinhos do Ceu. Waldir Azevedo was the first player who used the cavaquinho as a melody- and solo-instrument.

Wikipedia:

Waldir Azevedo (Rio De Janeiro, January 23, 1923 – São Paulo, September 21, 1980) was a choro conductor and performer. He wrote 130 compositions during his lifetime and played the cavaquinho. He is considered by many to be the first Brazilian cavaquinho shredder ever. One of his compositions, Delicado [Baiao], is a Latin American dance that has been arranged for piano.

The Radio MEC choro podcasts are no more available!

 

I have made screenshots of the programs of the four podcasts dedicated to the music of Waldir Azevedo as a reference:

Part 1 – Nov. 6, 2012

 Part 2, Nov. 13, 2012

 Part 3, Nov. 20, 2012 (not available as podcast at the moment)

Part 4, Nov. 27, 2012

with a great performance of Pedacinhos do Céu at the end of the show, played by Arthur Moreira Lima, Paulo Moura and Celso Machado

Roots of Woody Guthrie: Celebrating Woody at 100 –…

Roots of Woody Guthrie: Celebrating Woody at 100

July 14th, 2012 will mark the 100th birthday of the great songwriter, author and artist Woody Guthrie.  On today’s show we’ll honor Guthrie by playing a number of his songs and taking a look at some of the sources for the melodies he used and influences on the style in which he played and sang.

I have just discovered the site of Down Home Radio Show and I am exploring the great resources on this site.

“Down Home Radio Is A Hardcore, Unreconstructed, Paleo-acoustic, Folk Music Program.”

One of the recent shows was a podcast dedicated to Woody Guthrie whose 100th birthday was on July 14th 2012.

In this show you can hear 12 songs by Woody Guthry, each followed by an earlier version of a song that might be the original of Woodys song:

Woody Guthrie wrote very few original melodies, he took melodies of old time songs, folk and other songs and rewrote them with his own words to make them his own and into the songs we know today.

This is a very interesting show, for everybody who is interested in Woody Guthrie. You can listen to the show or download the podcast at:

Woody Guthrie – 1945

There is another show dedicated to Woody Guthrie at Down Home Radio Show:

Leadbelly & Woody Guthrie Live! On WNYC 1940

This week Henrietta and Eli discuss outlaw ballads and how criminals are transformed into popular heroes. In conjunction with that and of extra special interest, they rebroadcast a show Henrietta produced for WNYC radio back in 1940. It is Leadbelly’s show and he has as his guest, Woody Guthrie. This program has not been heard since it was first broadcast 67 years ago! Down Home would like to thank WNYC and archivist Andy Lanset for providing us with this rare material.

An interesting video is the following video about the making of the movie Woody Guthrie at 100:

Backroads and Banjos with Art Rosenbaum has also two podcasts about Woody Guthy:

Backroads & Banjos celebrates the centennial of Woody Guthrie’s birth with two segments dedicated to the man Alan Lomax once called “the greatest composer of folk songs.” On the first segment, Art chats with Ed Cray, the author of the book Ramblin’ Man: The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie about what made Guthrie such a special and beloved folk character despite his eccentricities.
