Based in London, England since 1999, leaving the British enraptured with its refined fingerpicking. Since then proceeded to internationally publicize their work and can see that the 'traditional' Brazilian music is very well received not only in England and throughout Europe, USA and Japan, whose populations are musically informed. The fact that our music is difficult to implement it is to the experts, a real challenge.
Ed is considered a master of traditional Brazilian music, an artist of the highest feedback. He began to be interested in the world of music as a child, through the radio; He started playing chip to eight years; at 12, he went to the guitar; at 13, he was already composing. Teaches that crying is a peculiar form of execution, which decorates the harmony and melody, and the rest - interpretation, counterpoint, ornaments - are made casually, as a 'musical play'.
Decades of dedication to music, studying the very sound of the 1930s to 1960, did able to listen to an orchestra (80 musicians or more) and individualize each instrument. So you are always listening to the classics, with any instrument, whether jazz of the 40s, folk music and classic Italian, French, Spanish and also great orchestras.
Ed is not involved with the song 'poor' (in the artistic sense), purely 'commercial', the Brazilian phonographic market imposes on us the day-to-day, and tries to listen - and run - music 'rich' in quality!
Listening to their songs is a rewarding experience and aggrandizing.

The result is a spectacular, pleasurable work - that pleases the ears and penetrates deep in the soul. (Hide extended text) ... (Read all)
