Posted on August 27, 2010

The great Brazilian guitarist Rogério Souza, whose swing and virtuosity have contributed to the groups of Paulinho de Viola, Época de Ouro, Nó em Pingo d’Água and Ivan Lins among others, will perform in New York City at Cornelia Street Café on September 8th from 8:30-11:00 pm. Accompanying him from Rio will be João Hermeto, pandeiro/percussion; they will be joined by Billy Newman guitarist/composer; Dennis Lichtman, mandolin/clarinet; and Rob Curto, accordion; from NYC.

One of the leading interpreters of choro and samba, Rogério’s guitar playing and composing is informed by a language and aesthetic rarely heard in New York City. More on Rogério’s music. . .
