DUOVAU, Brazilian Veredas, Live performance
April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
World Artists Experiences (WAE), in partnership with the Embassy of Brazil, presents a live performance of DUOVAU.
DUOVAU is a duo of Brazilian musicians, Levi Ramiro and Esdras Rodrigues, who come from different musical traditions and together present a canvas portraying the rich musical landscape of Brazil. The repertory in this project takes the listeners through evocative Brazilian musical genres, exploiting their rich expressive and rhythmic content, and establishing a straight connection with geographical, social, and cultural aspects of Brazil. Watch their video at https://youtu.be/BnSUJf-gmJQ.
LEVI RAMIRO is a violeiro (viola brasileira player), singer, composer, and luthier. The viola brasileira is a ten-string (5 courses in pairs) guitar made out of gourds. Levi has his roots in folk music from Brazil; he has won important music national prizes and recorded and performed throughout Brazil, sharing his music with many artists. He is actively engaged as an educator, with a published songbook of his music, and by ministering workshops on performance and construction of the viola brasileira. ESDRAS RODRIGUES is a rabequeiro [rabeca brasileira (a Brazilian fiddle) player] and a career violinist (University of Campinas and Boston University) with vast experience with orchestras, chamber music and teaching (University of Campinas).
