The phenomenal musical legacy of the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos can hardly be expressed in words. The Villa-Lobos-Duo, which is made up of guitarist Boyan Karanjuloff and cellist Sven Holger Philippsen, has paid its respects on the 50th anniversary of the death of Heitor Villa-Lobos and released a tribute album called “The White Indian”.
These two trained musicians, whose refined technical culture, elegant tonality and nuanced performance captivate listeners, have included interpretations of jazz musicians like Chic Corea and the Brazilian metal band Sepultura. The duo demonstrates creativity, independence and a fascinating dialogue with their instruments – even in arrangements by Dilermando Reis and Guinga – together with the guitarist, author and expert in Brazilian music Ahmed El-Salamouny. With “The White Indian”, they have created a genuine watershed in new classical music.
