A Rainha Da Viola Caipira
Warning: Last items in stock!
A stunning compilation of the revered Queen of The Viola Caipira, Helena Meirelles, once included in the Top 100 World’s guitar players by Guitar Player Magazine.
On this double-LP anthology you will face some of the most expressive Helena’s creations. ‘Guaxo’, for example contains an ultra-melodic guitar riff that will stick in your ears for ages while ‘Mercedita’ has an evolving rifferama. ‘Saudades Do Meu Velho Pai’, on the other hand, is a typical baião, a very peculiar Northeastern rhythm in Brazil, de-constructed by her very own style. ‘Flor Da Guavira’ is a delicious caipira-ballad. These are only a few great ones, amongst so many other exquisite, and unusual delights.
A fascinating journey into one of the lesser covered Brazilian genres, caipira, rich in folk and country music elements
