Let’s made this day a happy day, celebrating Sivuca with another artist that shares his passion for the accordion, Chiquinho do Acordeon, considered the Father of the modern accordion playing in Brazil.

The accordion was very popular in the 40’s, until the early 60’s. I remember my father asking me which instrument I would like to learn, the acoustic guitar or the accordion. It was really common at the times the choice of the accordion instead of the acoustic guitar as the first instrument in the childhood. By the way, my choice was the guitar.

I’m wondering if it was better playing first the accordion, such complex and rich instrument could provide myself a better initial music education.
