Rodrigo Maranhão, a musician from Rio de Janeiro, has been acknowledged in the past few years as a new and competent talent in the Brazilian music environment. Rodrigo is a member of a group known as Bangalafumenga, which has two albums released. Bangalafumenga is also a social project that invites people from different walks of life to learn a musical instrument in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Rodrigo Maranhão's first solo album,'Bordado'('Stitchery') has been released recently. The album is totally acoustic, filled with songs that takes you through a musical tour of Brazil.
The album was produced by Rodrigo and Paulo Brandao, the bass player for the band. The band also counts with Marcelo Caldi playing acordeon, Marcello Gonçalves in the viola and guitar, as well as Ely Werneck and Sidon Silva playing percussion.
'Bordado' counts with already popular songs such as 'Caminho das Aguas', 'Recado' and 'Mantra' previously recorded by Maria Rita in her album 'Segundo'.
I have listened to Rodrigo's songs on MPB FM and You Tube. I've been searching the internet to buy the album on MP3 format, but so far had no luck. Amazon has the CD.
My favorite song is 'Caminho das Aguas'. I just love the Northeastern character of the song - especially the acordeon and percussion. See what you think…
