Ted & Pablo -  Transcontinental Music Express

Ted & Pablo - Transcontinental Music Express

Mandolinist/violinist Ted Falcon hooks up with harmonica virtuoso Pablo Fagundes in a program of Brazilian and American music.

Recorded in Brazil, selections include many original compositions as well as references to the great composers of both countries such as Ernesto Nazareth and David Grisman.

Ted Falcon, an American, first discovered his passion for Brazilian music when he heard choro at home listening to his father playing the guitar music of Villa-Lobos. He has dedicated himself to the study of the mandolin and choro for the past 7 years, recording a Brazilian instrumental CD, Memorias do Brasil, and writing a mandolin book, Retratos do Brasil.

Pablo Fagundes, a Brazilian, fell in love with the blues, an American style that has many fans in Brazil. Today he works to consolidate his instrument, the harmonica, in Brazilian music, developing research and giving lessons in the Escola de Choro Raphael Rabello in Brasilia. In Brazil, Pablo performs with Pede Cerrado, a group dedicated to various styles of Brazilian regional music, as well as with the Quarteto Camara, a group that explores Brazilian music, jazz and blues. He has also played with the Brazilian All Stars Blues band, opening for B.B. King, and recently at the Mandolin Symposium in California, played with David Grisman and Mike Marshall.
