Violinist from Rio Grande do Sul ends the first stage of the project aimed at training in Brazilian popular music for young instrumentalists in Serra Gaúcha
Varied themes from the national repertoire and copyright songs of Brazilian origin will be in the repertoire of Didactic Concert “See if you like”, that marks the end of the project Violin in Choro in Caxias do Sul, on the next day 01º March, Monday, to 17h. The circulation and music education project, coordinated by violinist Felipe Karam, consists of offices, masterclasses and didactic concerts of popular nature and aims to promote and disseminate the study of genres and rhythms in Brazil.
A cultural initiative aims, yet, demystify the orchestral instruments, like the violin, of the exclusive environment of concert music. The live will be transmitted from Teatro do Sesc Caxias and propagated through the artist's facebook and youtube and through Sesc Caxias facebook. The project will have three more stages, to be held in the cities of Novo Hamburgo, Montenegro and Porto Alegre. Violino no Choro is financed by the Aldir Blanc Law.
Formed by Felipe Karam to the five-string violin, Max Garcia on guitar, Miguel Tejera on bass and Dani Vargas on drums, the instrumental quartet will present varied themes from the national repertoire, contemplating great exponents of Brazilian music, like Djavan and Dorival Caymmi, and will present copyright songs of Brazilian origin, how I cry, Samba, ijexá and baião. It will also feature the special participation of the Caxiense guitarist Leonel Costa doing a duo with Karam.
The Didactic Concert “See if you like” will offer musical orientations and peculiarities about the Brazilian musical identity, its history and rhythmic diversity. The title “See if you like” makes reference to a Brazilian choro by Waldir Azevedo and proposes to celebrate the workshop and the masterclasses made no period of 24 to 27 February, serving young instrumentalists from Serra Gaúcha. All activities are free.
Musician and composer Felipe Karam, five-string violinist, has a master's degree City University London (Londres-UK), and deep research and experience in the language of crying and jazz. His trajectory was marked by the constant search and discovery of a new way of playing, or “soar”, with ownership, within popular musical styles, that you've always identified with, to the violin, although for that I needed to change countries, and even reinvent yourself in your musical and instrument study.
