Starting the year

The year started… but maybe you don’t know that here in Brazil it’s a little bit different then the rest of the world. Why? Because here the year only starts after Carnival, which begins tomorrow!

And while Brazilians go nuts I’ll be enjoying the most amazing gathering of guitar players in San Francisco this Saturday! Along with the finger-style master Martin Taylor and the jazz duo of Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo – I’ll be performing for the Omni Foundation’s Dynamite Guitars, at the Palace of Fine Arts. For more information, go to OmniConcerts.

After the weekend I’ll enjoy the great blues player Roy Rogers and the amazing multi-instrumentalist Carlos Reyes on a recording session for our upcoming project ‘StringShot’ Stay tuned!

On the 12th I’ll perform at the Shedd Institute for the Arts, in Eugene, OR @ 7:30
Catching a flight at 5:00 am (!!) I’ll fly to MN next day (13th) to perform for the BrazilFest, at the International Market Square. Carnival day!!!! It’s going to be 2 concerts. In the early afternoon I’ll play to children. Dressing for them, I’ll sing songs from my Brazilian kid’s project ‘Cantos de Casa’. And during the night I’ll perform for the adults. You can’t miss it!!

Next day (14th) at Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant , I’ll perform to celebrate Valentines Day, with the great guitar player and singer Robert Everest as my special guest.
