Fernando Barroso has just released his new CD ‘Silence Lovers Club – Mandolin Pieces’. He is promoting this new CD with concerts and radio interviews. Today I have listened to the Lume na palleira podcast by Radio Galega. The second hour of this podcast is completely dedicated to the interview with Fernando Barroso and it includes seven tracks from this CD. Another podcast includes 3 pieces from the new CD.
The music is very interesting, the sound of the mandolin and the cello fit together very well. The compositions are rhytmically and melodically interesting. I love this music very much.
There are two youtube videos with pieces from the CD:
Fernando Barroso con Margarida Mariño – O Barqueirinho
Fernando Barroso & Margarida Mariño – ‘D-Swing’

Luis Peixoto and Fernando Barroso have taken part in the Madeira Mandolin Festivals of the last years. Fernando Barroso has just recorded a new album which will be available on January 16. Luis Peixoto was born in 1980 in Coimbra in Portugal, Fernando Barroso is from Galicia in the Northwest of Spain. Both share the love for all kind of stringed instruments like mandolin, bouzouki, cavaquinho or guitar. They have worked together and in different groups with other musicians.
During the last days I have compiled a large playlist with recordings by Fernando Barroso and Luis Peixoto.
In this post I want to present the music of Luis Peixoto and Fernando Barroso. In 2012 the album POP has been published, a life concert was filmed in 2013 and is available on youtube. In this concert Fernando Barroso does mainly play the Bouzouki, while Luis Peixoto plays the mandolin, the cavaquinho and some other instruments.
