Description

Flamboyant accordionist Renato Borghetti and his quartet present their new project 'Gaita na Fábrica' (Accordion in the Factory). It is produced entirely in the cultural space where Borghetti is developing his new social project. The 'Fábrica de Gaiteiros' (Factory of Accordionists) is located in the town of Barra do Ribeiro near Porto Alegre in Southern Brazil, next to the ranch of the charismatic accordion star. Under the direction of Emily Borghetti, Renato's daughter and an architect, the old factory on the bank of the Guaíba river was transformed into a beautiful, multifunctional space containing an accordion factory, an accordion school, and a small concert venue. It is a magical, inspiring place where children and young adults can develop their love for music and at the same time learn how to play and build the 'gaita ponto' or 8 bass diatonic accordion, the instrument that represents the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The quartet's new album is the result of this very special atmosphere. Most of the twelve compositions on this album, are composed by Renato Borghetti and his musical friends who have been working together for more than 20 years. They are the fruit of many years of shared friendship and travelling. The compositions are a mature and contemporary twist on the typical rhythms from the south of Brazil. Milongas, vaneiras, xote and chamamés executed in an unconventional and almost classical formation. Renato Borghetti: diatonic accordion Pedrinho Figueiredo: soprano sax and flute Daniel Sá: guitars, musical director Vitor Peixoto: piano and cajon
