Madeira Mandolin Festival – Festival Internacional de Bandolins da…

I have recently started to collect videos with the mandolin orchestras from Madeira. Madeira has a long tradition of mandolin orchestras.

In 2016 the first Madeira Mandolin Festival took place. I have found several great videos made during this festival with the Edu Miranda Trio, Luís Peixoto and Norberto Cruz.

Edu Miranda Trio is playing some great Choros, Luís Peixoto plays two solo pieces on the cavaquinho, and Norberto Cruz plays a Sonata by Carlos Seixas.
