Brazilian Music Foundation and Asuos Productions have the pleasure of presenting for the first time in New York City Marcello Linhos & Armorial "Viola Caipira" as part of our annual cultural and educational program. "Viola Caipira" it is predominantly played in the Brazilian countryside and small towns, also known as "Viola Sertaneja", "Cabocla" or "Brazilian chordophone." It is a recognized example of traditional Brazilian folk music, folkloric, also called sertaneja music.
Marcello Linhos & Armorial
The group, winner of FAC Conex„o Cultura/Brasilia, DF, will present a rich and sensitive repertoire that has enchanted Brazilians from all walks of life. They simply propose a new form of Brazilian regional music whose essence binds us with the deep rooted, singular feeling of love of our land. This music connects us to each other and to our origins. It resonates and rekindles the past bringing forth often hidden and unknown memories in our hearts.
Recapturing the musical style for today rekindles the connection to the caipira feeling within each of our hearts, an essential emotion, so simple and yet at the same time as elaborate as love. With great care, respect and attention, old peasant waltzes and one hundred year old sertanejo modinhas like "Tristezas do Jeca" (Jeca's Sorrows) by Angelino de Oliveira, and "Rosa" ( Rose) by Conde Affonso Celso Junior receive a new look and join new arrangements of regional music classics like the acclaimed "Trem do Pantanal" (Wetland Train) by Almir Sater and "Romaria" (Pilgrimage) by Renato Teixeira. The new Brazilian regional music is centenary and at the same time modern. Marcello Linhos and his Armorial raise the flag and thrill their audience at the first touch of the viola bringing out the country feeling latent in each of our hearts.
