Event description: 

Join the Iberian Soundscapes conference (October 6-7) for “Brazilian Bandolim Virtuoso Tiago Souza Presents: Choro-Samba-Jazz,” on Saturday, October 7 from 6-7:30PM in Luce Hall Auditorium. Featuring Tiago Souza on the bandolim, Rogério Souza on the 7-string guitar, and Stephen Guerra on the 6-string guitar.

Tiago Souza follows in the footsteps of his father, Ronaldo do Bandolim, an icon of the Brazilian mandolin. Playing with emotion and freedom, Tiago is part of a school of musicians formed in the Lapa district in Rio during the 2000s that mixes traditional choro with other musical styles like baião, samba, tango, and jazz, while creating a new style of interpretation and improvisation. He has participated in several recordings of choro and samba, among them “Regional Carioca,” “Callado, the Father of the Chorões,” the DVD “Brasileirinho” and “Histórias de um João de Barro with Bia Bedran.” He is a regular participant in the biggest choro festivals in Brazil as well as touring regularly throughout Europe and the U.S. with samba groups such as Unha de Gato, Pé de Moleque, and Semente Choro-Jazz.

No advance registration required.
