    Looks like a nice resource from a Brazilian school. As far as I could tell, there is no translation. Can someone translate for us here?

    Some snippets from the automated Google Translate, hopefully "fair use" of copyrighted material since it's only a small portion of the manualdochoro.com.br page:

    "... The Manual is accompanied by a CD with more than 130 tracks of exercises, traditional choros, unpublished choros and playbakcs to practice the concepts learned....

    "HENRIQUE GRANDSON
    Guitarist... graduated in Music degree from the University of Brasilia, ... coordinator of the Brazilian School of Choro Raphael Rabello.... for more than ten years he has been part of the Choro Livre group.... He has performed on stages from four continents.


    "EDUARDO MAYA
    Bandolinist, composer and music producer, ... professor of the Brazilian School of Choro Raphael Rabello for five years. In the last ten years he has performed shows and workshops abroad, especially Europe, United States and Canada. And since 2011 he heads the Centrum Choro Workshop, the largest event dedicated exclusively to Choro in the United States...."

    Hmm, now that's interesting, Centrum Choro... Centrum is that thing in Port Townsend (Washington state, west coast of US) that has the week-long Fiddle Tunes camp that's been going since the late 1970s.

    Anyway, as to whether there's any English inside the actual printed manual itself, I have no clue... although I did notice that the book's picture shows some small-print English lettering below the title.

    I hope that some informed people will follow up on this book / CD offering.

    As for Centrum Fiddle camp, it is always the top names in any field. I wonder how they get such fine players from ALL areas? I have worked with the Klezmer teachers and know first hand that they are the core of klezmer technique in the world.

    Hi,
    I asked Henrique (Neto) via FBook Messenger if there was going to be an English language edition and he didn't really answer me explicitly. I put this down to a suspected lack of a facility with English and that he therefore didn't really get what I was asking.

    I'm about to ask him again and I'll report back,

    Fantastic. I organized Dudu's first two workshops in NYC a few years ago. He is an excellent olayer and teacher and a sweet guy. Interesting that his is writing the book under his formal name.
