Eduardo Neves e Rogério Caetano

Projetos 01 Dec 16 0

The duet formed by the flutist, saxophonist and composer Eduardo Neves and by the guitarist and also composer Rogério Caetano easily moves between the popular and the erudite on the CD “Cosmopolita”, released in October 2015 in Rio de Janeiro. From choro to jazz, through frevo, samba and bossa nova, musicians sought, in the diversity of genres, to build a modern, plural and original play. The improvisation can be identified in songs performed in a more loose, light and humorous way, and in others, in an erudite, classic, chamber way, but at the same time with the dispossession of Brazilian popular music and influenced by Villa Lobos.
Members: Eduardo Neves – flute and sax; Rogério Caetano – seven string guitar.

Workshop Livro 7 Cordas – Técnica e Estilo

Projetos 01 Dec 16 0

The workshop is based on the method “7 Strings, Technique and Style” written by Rogério Caetano in partnership with guitarist Marco Pereira.

The work presents the state of the art of the seven – string guitar in Brazil, through Rogério Caetano ‘s guitar practices, which translates the encounter of tradition with renewal.

The book includes a CD with recorded examples and organizes the technical procedures of the seven string guitar according to two guidelines.

On the one hand, it contemplates the legacy left by the musicians who marked the history of the seven string guitar in Brazil in the choro and samba schools, in particular.

And, on the other hand, it presents the way in which the new generation of musicians reveres the previous generations, appropriating this legacy and transforming it in living dialogue with the society in which it is manifested.
