Rate this Entry
Brazilian mandolin and Choro master Danilo Brito, brings us an incredibly special performance of Luperce Miranda's virtuosic composition "Quando me Lembro" played on Danilo's Brazilian made mandolin for this week's Mandolin Mondays.



Danilo Brito is a Brazilian mandolinist and composer whose international recognition lies on his extraordinary musical skills, on his unique ability to inspire emotion and on his outstanding contribution to the Brazilian instrumental music, notably, Choro.

The quintessential story of a child prodigy, he began to play at the age of three, playing his father mandolin. Having only old LP’s as his masters, he developed a singular technique, in an entirely self-taught way.By the time he was 13, he had recorded his first album as soloist, Moleque Atrevido. When he was only 19, he won the prestigious award Prêmio Visa de MPB. He was chosen the best intsrumental player among 514 competitors of the world.

Check out his brand new record that came out back in May of this year: https://open.spotify.com/album/1mKAR...QmqUrBXs9d7PFQ

    Fabuloso! Danilo's playing and arrangements never fail to make me exclaim out loud. This song is just one of 12 beautiful reasons to track down Sem Restrições from 2008. Fantastic music. Also not to be missed is Danilo's visit to the NPR Tiny Desk series:
