The new work of musician Júlio Pereira is presented in the form of a high quality illustrated book measuring 19x19cm (evocative of the old EPs) with 260 pages and a hard cover.

The book that includes the album Rasgar, describes the trajectory of cavaquinho practice from the present to the most remote information and the moments in which the instrument crosses paths with the musician and composer himself.

This study, authored by Nuno Cristo, constitutes the most recent contribution to an updated knowledge of the cavaquinho, in the different versions it has taken on since the 19th century. XIX. Without being exhaustive, the text cites for the first time a series of references, revealing repertoires and social contexts related to the practice of cavaquinho in Portugal at various times and places. Equally pioneering is the publication of rare images, some of which were previously unknown to the general public.

In order to give direct access to the international community, (let us remember that the construction of the cavaquinho is already Intangible Cultural Heritage), the book contains its English version, including reference works.

The album, prefaced by Susana Sardo (Ethnomusicologist, Full Professor at the University of Aveiro), with music and musical direction by Júlio Pereira, features the participation of twelve musicians and the guest voices of Selma Uamusse and Luanda Cozetti , was mixed with the innovative DolbyAtmos audio technology.

In one of the three centuries covered in this book there is an original illustration by Pedro Sousa Pereira with which we created an engraving on suitable card measuring 45x40cm.

About Julio Pereira

Official Website , Facebook Artist

Júlio Pereira needs no introduction... Attesting to his experience and musical testimony, he refers to almost a hundred albums in which he participated as an instrumentalist, orchestrator or producer. Not without mentioning the importance of his intimate connection to José Afonso's career, from the end of the 70s, as well as his participation in joint works with Pete Seeger, Kepa Junkera and The Chieftains.
Attesting to the recognition and consecration for his work — even more than the numerous awards he received —, we cannot fail to mention the cultural repercussion of his work, namely in the creation of schools and instrumentalists, seen in Portugal from the 80s onwards.
