Where: Online from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Seattle, WA
With formative musical experiences from Rio de Janeiro and Bahia respectively, Gabriel Improta and Almir Côrtes have deepened their understanding by researching the music at their very talented fingertips. In their duo, classical guitar and 10-string mandolin combine into an orchestral richness of Brazilian popular music. They relish the diverse musical styles that harmoniously thrive in their country, from the Belle-epoque valsas of Ernesto Nazareth to the poetic Tropicalismo of Caetano Veloso, the jazzy impressionism of Tom Jobim’s bossa nova, and the AfroBrasileiro intensity of Moacir Santos. In their own compositions, they create a contemporary interplay of fretted strings.
