The Brazilian state of Minas Gerais has taken the spotlight today. Minas is the home of many Loronixers, being the third Brazilian state driving traffic to Loronix. Once again we are making the bridge between popular music and classic music, delivering the second album by the label Caravelle, featuring a military band performing Heitor Villa Lobos. Sounds great. Let’s see.

This is Banda da Policia Militar de Minas Gerais – Villa Lobos, Na Musica de Banda (1963), for Caravelle. I never saw something like this, an album featuring a military band performing Villa Lobos. A military band consists of wind and percussion instruments and personnel are made of military, which are also musicians. The conductor of a band is also a military, but in this opportunity, we have a civilian, Maestro Sebastiao Vianna as Bandleader. Banda da Policia Militar de Minas Gerais is still active and I hope they get really happy to see their album at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Canto do Paje
02 – A Canoa Virou
03 – Na Bahia Tem
04 – O Ciranda, O Cirandinha
05 – Vem ca o Siriri
06 – Terezinha de Jesus
07 – Nesta Rua
08 – Constancia
09 – La na Ponte da Vinhaca
10 – Entrei na Roda
11 – Brasil Novo
12 – Desfile aos Herois do Brasil
13 – Cancao da Imprensa
14 – Pro Pax

(*) Tracks 02 to 10 are my favorites, Villa Lobos renditions to popular cantigas de roda.

Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Amilcar e Fulano Sicrano, ele pode ser buscado no Um que Tenha.
