BORGHETTI YAMANDU ON TOUR IN EUROPE

The two Stars of Música Gaúcha Instrumental

„When two big names of Brazilian instrumental music join for a project on the Gaúcho tradition, the result can only be unique.“ Folha de São Paulo  

Renato Borghetti and Yamandu Costa have been friends for many years and are among the worldwide best known Brazilian instrumentalists today – Borghetti as a virtuoso on the button accordion, Yamandu “Paganini” on the seven string guitar. 

Both are loved for their dazzling energy and stage presence, both easily change between urban and rural sound worlds and in their subtle arrangements reflect the living tradition of their home country Rio Grande do Sul. This excellent program is the result of long nights on Renato’s farm, a lively series of classical Brazilian themes, Choro and musica gaúcha typical for the South, of reinterpretations as well as exciting moments of improvisation, presented in the deep mutual understanding of two great artists and friends.   

BorghettiYamandu was released as CD&DVD in Brazil in 2017, and in 2018 was nominated for a Grammy Latino in the Roots category.

Las Hermanas Caronni

The highlight of BorghettiYamandu’s first European Tour will happen in Vienna on October 20. “New Sounds from the Pampas” is the title of of a night at Wiener Konzerthaus dedicated to contemporary sounds from the Pampa region in Southamerica.  The Brazilian Gaúchos (supported by Daniel Sá on guitar) will be joined by Las Hermanas Caronni from Argentina:

Twin sisters Laura (cello) and Gianna (clarinet) have been based in France for more than 20 years and developped a brilliant formula for success, blending their classical musical education with traditional sounds from Argentina and French Chanson. Clever, discretely sensual and endlessly elegant, theirs is music for those who still cherish values like refinement and class.

RENATO BORGHETTI MEETS VINCENT PEIRANI IN COLOMBIA

A special “accordion summit” will happen on January 11, 2017 in Colombia: The fabulous Festival Internacional de Música in Cartagena de Indias has invited accordion gaúcho Renato Borghetti from Southern Brazil and jazz accordionist Vincent Peirani from Southern France to perform together with their ensembles and a youth orchestra from Cartagena. This open air world première will happen in front of the impressive backdrop of the Cartagena harbour and be transmitted live by Colombian Television.

RENATO BORGHETTI PRESENTS “GAITA NA FÁBRICA” ON TOUR IN EUROPE

GAITA NA FÁBRICA – Sounds from the Squeezebox Factory!

Renato Borghetti and his quartet present their new project „Accordion in the Factory“, produced entirely at the FÁBRICA DE GAITEIROS, the cultural space where Borghetti is developing his new social project. It is a magical, inspiring place, where children and young adults can develop their love for music and at the same time learn how to play the accordion. The new album is the result of this very special atmosphere, offering a mature and contemporary twist on the typical rhythms from the south of Brazil. Milongas, Vaneiras, Xote and Chamamés, executed in an unconventional and almost classical formation: piano (Vitor Peixoto), flute/sax (Pedro Figueiredo) and acoustic guitar (Daniel Sá, also in charge of musical direction).

A TIME OF FAREWELLS…

The first six months of this year have been a time of farewells:

At the beginning of April Juan Carlos Cáceres lost the fight against his cancer, and in May Renato Borghetti’s duo partner Artur Bonilla died in a car accident in Brazil, just after the return from his first successful tour in Europe.

The international accordion collective Samurai have stopped working together, and we have ended our collaboration with Martin Lubenov und Maja Osojnik.
