Rudd releases new live video of Sarará by Brazilian guitarist and composer Yamandu Costa. The work evokes the spirit of the chamamé, a mainstay of gaucho guitar cultures that proliferate in the border regions of northern Argentina, southern Brazil and Uruguay. The piece recounts the tail of a healer who rides from town to town on horseback.
The video series showcases his new arrangement of the Brazilian Popular Suite by Heitor Villa-Lobos. The suite, originally written for solo guitar, is here reimagined for guitar and small ensemble, giving this classic work new life.
