Nelson Cavaquinho e Guilherme de Brito

Carnaval 2015 is at our doorstep, it is early this year, half
february already. One of the famous singers from the old
days is Nelson Cavaquinho. This lp was recorded in 1973
and contains songs about carnaval, like ‘Vou Partir’.
Nelson’s strong guitar strokes belong to my very
favourites. Listen to a great piece
of Brazillian blues..

02 – Folhas secas
03 – Caminhando
04 – Minha festa
05 – Mulher sem alma
06 – Vou partir

09 – É tão triste cair

    O mestre mesmo (ou, considerando a participacao do Guilherme Brito, os mestres). Who can you compare him to? Leonard Cohen? Skip James? An older guy who has seen it all, that’s for sure.
