The musician, who is releasing a new album named ‘O Alvorecer’ in partnership with Sai Conde, also left a testimonial about Lineu Bravo guitar
Playing a Lineu Bravo guitar, the musician Guilherme Lamas is releasing, this year, his new album named “O Alvorecer”, in honor of the Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth. Guilherme, since 2015, has been playing in a duo with the Colombian Sai Conde, who plays a mandolin made by the luthier Diego Valencia.
They started playing together when Guilherme and Sai Conde met each other in Barão Geraldo, near Unicamp (University of Campinas), where both do a master’s degree.
In this new album, the mandolin is the soloist and the 7-string steel guitar made by Lineu Bravo plays the support and also the melodies of the lowest-sounding timbres of the instrument.
The musicians are performing the release show in a different way, playing unknown music. The idea is to play the material that has been studied at the university. For this reason, Guilherme is playing his Lineu Bravo guitar all over Brazil.
