Duo Americas

Formado pela flautista Maria Carolina Cavalcanti e pelo violonista Jorge L. Santos, o Duo Americas surgiu em 2011 com o propósito de interpretar música das 3 Américas, sem distinção de estilo, tempo e/ou origem, do colonial a vanguarda, do folclore ao popular urbano, do Alasca a Patagônia.
A proposta é construir um diversificado painel sonoro cuja a pintura seja retrato das mais diferentes tendências que se expressaram, e se expresssam, na música feita nas Americas.
Tudo isso através de dois instrumentos que chegaram na bagagem dos europeus, mas logo se identificaram como poucos com as raízes culturais americanas.

Formed by the flutist Maria Carolina Cavalcanti and the classical guitarist Jorge L. Santos, Duo Americas emerged in 2011 with the purpose of perfom music from three Americas (North, Central and South), regardless style, time and / or origin, from colonial to avant-guard, from urban popular to folklore, from Alaska to Patagonia.
The proposal is to build a diverse landscape whose the horizon is always very different picture of the trends that expresse(d) the music made in the Americas.

All that performed through two instruments that arrived in the baggage of european settlers , but immediately became identified as few others with the american cultural roots.
