TEN BRAZILIAN FOLK TUNES

for Guitar Solo

Fingered by

Carlos Barbosa-Lima

Harmonized by Isais Savio

Maracatu is a dance, popular in Recife, in the northeast of Brazil. It comes from Africa and represents a court with king, queen, and vassals. They sing, accompanied by such percussion instruments as bells and cuicas; the latter is a drum-like instrument open at one end and with a stick attached to the center of the drum skin which produces a grunting noise when rubbed. More recently, wind and stringed instruments have been used for accompaniment.

Modinha is traditionally a nostalgic song with romantic verses on the subject of love. It is usually in a minor key and is widely used in serenades with guitar accompaniment.

Sapo Jururu (eururu) means "sad frog" because of the melancholy sounds which the frog makes toward the evening. It is a lullaby which the Afro-Brazilian women used to sing to children.

Lundu is a dance and song of African and Amerindian origin. At the beginning of the 20th century it was taken over by the salons, where it is accompanied by piano or guitar.

Oespedida means "parting"in Portuguese. One can imagine this piece as representing a heartfelt good-bye.

Samba-Lela means "the staggering drunk" or "the mad dancer" in an African language. It is a humorous name given to freed slaves who spent their money at the "samba clubs" making fun of the Afro-Brazilians who were still slaves. The latter got even by hitting the freedmen.

Toada is ballad or a song whose rhythm and accompaniment vary in different regions of

Brazil.

Mulher Rendeira The mulher rendeira is a lace-maker, in this case in the poverty-stricken Northeast of Brazil.

MAESTRO ISAIAS SAVIO

Isaias Savio was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, on 1 October 1900. When he was very young he studied music and piano in the Franz Liszt Conservatory, and later he studied guitar with Professor Conrad P. Koch. After that he studied with Miguel Llobet when the latter made visits to the Rio de la Plata region of South America.

He later taught Llobet's method in Brazil and became professor of guitar at the Dramatic and Musical Conservatory of Sao Paulo, a chair he himself established in 1947.
