Antonio Adolfo, Nó Em Pingo D'água & João Pernambuco

Hello, good evening! This is a very important post that brings to Loronix a musician that I never had the chance to speak about. It is also important to say we are only getting in touch with this musician with the help of Jorge Mello that kindly made available this album to Loronix, directly from his amazing collection. I have been wondering today how many friends from Loronix community had the chance to know the works of Joao Pernambuco, considered by many one of the fathers, if not the father of the Brazilian violao.

Joao Pernambuco was born in 1883 and his work as an instrumentalist is only available by 78 RPMs recorded in the 1920’s decade. But his legacy and his contribution to Brazilian music remain n strong influence throughout a century, shaping the works of musicians such like Jacob do Bandolim, Meira, Baden Powell, Mauricio Carrilho, Raphael Rabello, among many others.


This photo taken in 1913 at the city of Petropolis, Rio de Janeiro featuring Donga, a non identified musician, Joao Pernambuco and Pixinguinha comes from an awesome website that I had the chance to know today with the help of Jorge Mello and this fantastic contribution. I would like to invite you to spend a time at, a tribute to Joao Pernambuco, owned and maintained by the Italian musician Angelo Zaniol, a work of passion for Joao Pernambuco and the music from Brazil. There you will find Joao Pernambuco pictures, discography and Angelo Zaniol arrangements for Joao Pernambuco music, among many other things. Thanks Jorge Mello and thanks also Angelo Zaniol for your beautiful tribute.

This is Antonio Adolfo & Grupo No em Pingo D’Agua – Joao Pernambuco | 100 Anos (1983), for Funarte, a tribute to Joao Pernambuco Centennial, a very nice session with the piano of Antonio Adolfo and the Choro Group No em Pingo D’Agua, featuring twelve selected tracks taken from Joao Pernambuco compositions. This album is self explanatory and you have a lot of things to discover today with Angelo Zaniol website and Joao Pernambuco music. Have a nice weekend. Tracks include:
