Marchinha de Carnaval

( Celso Machado )

This Marchinha de Carnaval originates from the suite Modinha Brasileira by the Brazilian Celso Machado. A humorous piece to play, every recital it lends itself to a fun approach. You can start drowsily and then swing your sweat out in the end. Viva la Carnaval! We do not follow all repeats in the original piece completely, but it will not bother the swing.

Celso Machado was born in 1953 in Ribeirao Preto in the vicinity of Sao Paulo. His family was extremely musical. He studied guitar with amongst others Oscar M. Guerra and became famous in Brasil as guitarist and percussionist. He composes a number of collections which are clearly rooted in Brazilian popular music, though he also composes quite some 'modern latin'.

If you like to play this music: this collection Modinha Brasileira, is available with music publisher Henri Lemoine, number 24821 H.L.
