"I Think he is the greatest composer of Brazilian music to come from the United States." Guinga
Guitarist Benji Kaplan has just completed recording his 2nd album, Meditacoes no Violao (Guitar Meditations) comprised of original compositions inspired by many great composers most notably Guinga and Garoto.
Through his percussionist father, Benji started playing Dumbek at the age of 6 and demonstrated a highly sophisticated sense of rhythmic creativity. He began playing guitar professionally at the age of 15 and since then has traveled and played in Rio, Sao Paulo and the Brazilian Northeast (Recife, Olinda and Fortaleza). Benji has received accolades for his intricate guitar compositions and in particular is admired by Guinga, perhaps the most recognized Brazilian composer post-Jobim.
Before or after the show, join us for a screening of Music According to Tom Jobim.
