Hamilton De Holanda @ Teatro Caixa Nelson Rodrigues (Centro) – Hamilton de Holanda has reinvented the mandolin and plays the iconic Brazilian instrument in line with the legacy of some of its previous masters. The speed and versatility of his solos and improvisations has inspired a new generation to approach the mandolin once again.

Tonight, he invites Mariene de Castro. With a firm and singular voice, Mariene de Castro has achieved prominence in the music scene after winning, in 2004, the Braskem Music Award. With five albums already released, whoever follows Mariene’s work knows she is part of a select group of singer-songwriters.

Tickets are between R$15 – R$40 and the night gets going at 7PM.
