Last April, the group Choro de Minas launched in Betim, city in Minas Gerais, a DVD called “Choro de Minas” at the Minas Gerais University Conservatorium. The quartet is composed by the musicians Dudu Braga (cavaco), Silvio Carlos (7-string guitar), Ramon Braga (tambourine) and Marcos Flávio (trombone).
The DVD was recorded live at the “Casa de Cultura Josephina Bento”, in Betim. It contains authorial pieces and Choro classics on the repertoire and it has great relevance because of the lack of instrumental DVD’s of this type.
In May, the radio program Roda de Choro broadcast all the DVD songs. Also, the audio was retransmitted for more than 224 Brazilian radio programs, apart from Japan and Angola.
Composed by four of the greatest Choro artistis from Minas Gerais, the group celebrates its 10 years of activities and it has already performed in many national and international musical festivals. It was de first group of Minas Gerais that performed in the “Choro de Brasilia” club.
The quartet is composed by Dudu Braga (cavaco), musical producer, Marcos Flávio (trombone), teacher at the University of Minas Gerais, Silvio Carlos (7-string guitar), founder of a group called “Flor de Abacate” and Ramon Braga, multi-instrumentalist and Choro specialist.
