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.

Maximillian Rudd has teamed up with Doug de Vries for this latest video. Doug de Vries is a leading exponent of Brazilian music and one of Australia’s most acclaimed guitarists, having played with the likes of Kate Cebrano, James Morrison and Paul Grabowsky, as well as Brazilian giants Yamandu Costa and Hermeto Pascoal. Here the new duo are kept on their toes as they tackle Visitando o Recife by Canhoto da Paraíba, recorded remotely under coronavirus restrictions.
