    I want to produce this girl here in Ireland and Europe. I think this is a good start. This because my end ambition is to establish a personal songline link to my Brasil and I personally love Brazilian country music, having spent my childhood in Paraná state, close to Mato Grosso and Paraguay borders. 🙂

    She is called Bruna Viola, just 21, plays the Brazilian viola sertaneja and is very talented.

    My son thinks it is crazy but my heart say this is the open door to bring more Brazilian culture to Europe. Maybe I am crazy for sure but my need to extend my roots have no limits. 🙂

    You comments will be most welcome:

    I'm a big fan of Latin music but it took me ages to "get into it"
    and I probably never would if I hadn't taken up dancing. And
    that's your big problem - getting people to adjust their ears
    to a new genre. We all like what we know, and know what we like.

    Having said all that she looks like a great talent but it's too
    much "Country" for me. (At the moment! 😉 )

    Thanks for your comments. Yes she is very country and as such, an acquired taste and/or a traditional one. Whatever, I think that with her charisma and her viola she can get her audience dancing whatever the age because of her swing.

    Because of the BRICS coalition, Brazil is on its way up anyways.

    I expect Brazil to explode in world popularity after/during the World Cup.

    Backing her now might just be awesome timing.

    I think so too, specially because people know of samba, bossa nova, MPB (Brazilian popular music) but no one knows of Brazilian country music with the viola sertaneja, typical pagode rhythms that are very gay, happy, dancing tunes. 🙂

    The only press Brazil is receiving for the World Cup is negative. Furthermore, what does BRICS have to do with anything?

    My daughter turned me on to her a few months ago! She is really talented for sure, beautiful also. The guitar she plays is a ten string like a 12 string guitar with one less row, I always wondered what the tuning of it is. On the second song you put out, the guitar, not sure what it is called, anyway it sounded a bit weak, like it wasn't miked well enough but her magnificent voice and energy comes through strong!

    Wonder how long she has to wear those braces?

    Have you ever heard Rodrigo Y Gabriela?

    If you notice Gabriela's hands, her motions of percussive technique is very similar to Irish Bodhran playing, because she actually studied Bodhran and translated that to guitar!

    Here they are on a spot on Jay Leno:

    YouTube

    Take a look at their playing

    Leno says they now live in Ireland.

    I found this one, no video, just audio, of two tunes, one by Metallica I think and the second one Take 5 and it is amazing, Paul Desmond (sax player) wrote it and Dave Brubeck made it a huge hit in 1959, back when I was in high school. Anyway in this piece Gabriela does a REALLY great percussive break that almost perfectly duplicated Joe Morello's original drum solo on that piece, which blew me away to hear that on a guitar!

    BTW, I took piano lessons from Dave Brubecks brother Howard, at Palomar College where he taught till he died in 1994 and I met Dave there once.

    Howard wrote a lot of music for Dave and Dave wrote a lot of music also.

    I was infatuated with Howard's daughter Ginger, we had some classes together at Palomar. Sigh.

    Anyway, Rodrigo Y Gabriela:

    BRICS is the newest thing, man. Lots of countries want to join the bandwagon, too. Because of the heavy hitters China, India and maybe even Russia, I see Brazil and South Africa only benefiting from the coalition. It can only help the economy of Brazil, and with the World Cup coverage, Brazil will be on the short lists of countries looking for new trading partners.

    You can either ride the tide of change or be left behind by it.

    What affect has the BRICS thing had on music from those BRICS countries penetrating music markets in [1] other BRICS countries, and in [2] non-BRICS countries. Have the various kinds of music found in each of the BRICS countries been influencing or changing each other? e.g. has Russian music influenced, say, Brazilian music since 2006 when the acronym BRIC was first coined?

    It's not just music, it's the whole economy of these countries, and music is just a part of that.

    Geez, some dense folks here I see.

    How has the BRICS thing created a "tide of change" in music in your view?

    I'll ONLY say this once more.

    It's not JUST music, it's the ENTIRE economy of these countries.

    If you can't see how that would improve the music industry in these countries, then I can't help you.

    Stop trolling me. Go back to Spirituality, where your 'stick-in-the-mud' methods of gumming up the conversation fit the clientele there.

    I know all about the economies of BRICS. I live in a country that many commentators are now adding to the list when they talk about energing economies with big markets. I can see how this can affect the music industry, but I am curious as to how you think it has or can "improve the music industry in these countries" or what any of this has to do with Bruna Viola.
