In 2013, my first CD Nicwenra – guitar solo was released by the label Guandama. For more information, follow the menu: Guitarrist – Nicwenra.
Below, you can listen to some of these tunes and watch some videos as well. Enjoy yourself!
As an instrumentist, I started playing Rock’n Roll. When I was accepted in the Music Course at UNICAMP (1994), I got in touch with Bossa Nova and Jazz.
Professionally, I’ve worked for a long time as a sideman for MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) and jazz singers. Among these gigs, I like to highlight duoZório, where I play with the singer and childhood friend (besides being my son’s godfather and soccer partner!) Noel Jr., in the traditional voice and guitar formation. In the repertoire, MPB standards.
Apart from sideman, I’ve always played Brazilian Jazz. I play solo and with Marcus Almeida trio. In both cases, I write the tunes, arrange them and improvise. In the repertoire, Bossa Nova, Choro, Samba, Standards and my own tunes.
In 2009, I recorded the Marcus Almeida trio DVD, produced by MacPro filmes and directed by Marcelo Cauê. Unfortunately, this material has never been released.
