Aqui E O Meu La


Brazilian violinist Ricardo Herz's album, Aqui é o meu lá, features newly composed original songs, in which swing, groove and sexy improvisation set the tone. In building his own personal style of playing, Herz has reinvented the way the violin is played. His technique has allowed him to bring out unexpected twists, such as making the instrument sound like an accordion, or even like a rabeca, which are perfect for Brazilian grooves such as the forró and the choro. Herz lived in Paris for nine years and enhanced his technique under the guidance and mentorship of jazz master Didier Lockwood. He improvised with North-African rhythms such as the chabi. To celebrate his return to his Brazilian homeland, Ricardo has released his fourth album, Aqui é o meu lá, with fellow musicians Pedro Ito (drums and percussion) and Michi Ruzitschka (7-string guitar). This album truly represents what Herz has lived (and played) through the last 10 years: there are forrós, choros, chamames and ballads. "Brazilian music magnificently represented. His potential is extraordinary." Didier Lockwood "Ricardo Herz, besides his amazing musical feeling, shows one of his greatest assets on stage: his charisma!" Hamilton de Holanda
