Chorinho pra loria by Celso Machado

The Charke~Cormier Duo is thrilled to present the first track off our visual album, Sambamar. The album was produced as a visual accompaniment to our last album, The Equation of Time, which was released last summer. This album features the first piece on that album, and is the piece after which this album is named. Sambamar is the second book of flute and guitar music written by our good friend and colleague, Celso Machado (who also lends percussion throughout the album!) We’re releasing one track a month until we’ve got none left, so, enjoy Chorinho pra loria, and look forward to next month when we release Sambamar!
