(Just one moment)

Preto Velho

in 1981, Bebeto made the fantastic song “Preto Velho”. Based on the lyrics, he composed to his grandfather, an afro descent who either him or his mom/dad was forced to move to Brazil. Beautiful song!I was lucky enough Jana Crivelli (@jcrivelli) introduced it to me and we decided to make an arrangement with berimbau, conga, 8 strings […]

Veja, Veja

Beautiful capoeira song, recorded with guitar, cavaquinho (first time for me 🙂 ), berimbau and several other Brazilian percussions. Mara Leone is singing and Jana Crivelli in the percussion. It was so fun to record all of that in the Harati Media studios. Hope you enjoy!


Ceci, one my compositions is released today. Happy to get it out, recorded with the eight strings guitar solo. Easy listening, brazilian jazz style, hope to bring you good vibes.

Take Five (Paul Desmond)

I’m honored today to release Take Five, song from Paul Desmond, immortalized by the first record done by Dave Brubeck and then, recorded first time on electric guitar solo by Chet Atkins. Based on the fantastic version of Chet Atkins, here you have now a version on solo nylon guitar. I’ve actually played on my […]

Berimbau (Baden Powell & Vinicius de Moraes)

This has been always an amazing song for me. Lots of emotions since I’ve learned it, directly from the master Baden Powell, via his recordings. Believe me or not, I believe I’ve started Capoeira because of it. Today I’m honored. Berimbau is released and you can listen below. Even more, as I had the pleasure […]

Play Along – One Chord

If you want to practice improvisation, scales and etc, it is very nice to have “someone” playing a one chord vamp for certain time. I am recording a series of 5 min videos and believe you could benefit from that.

Caçador Photo Shooting

Baixarias (Bass Line)- Violão de 7 Cordas (7 Strings Guitar)

Not always you have the opportunity to listen only the 7 strings guitar track. Thanks to Boca Rica, I was invited to play the very traditional guitar to his new album and song Mundo de Ilusão. That’s back to my roots, Dino 7 Cordas “school”. Fantastic production and arrangement by Maurício Ribeiro. I was blessed […]

Caçador – New Single is Released!

New song released today, Caçador is my latest “baby”. Quite an adventure to create this one and I’m pleased to share the background with you. The instruments recorded: Guitar – I’ve used my 8 strings guitar; Berimbau – Tuned to follow the guitar, and I must say, it is always a challenge to get the […]

My Current IT Gear for Audio and Video

I just noticed it has been long time I don’t update what gear I am using for audio and recently, video recording. I’m my “open book” practice, and sharing everything I use. Also, would be happy to answer questions, listen recommendations and comments. At the end, we all learn a lot from the collaboration and […]
