I just found this youtube channel that has Brazilian choro music on the violin - it's so happy - it cheers me up when mini eggs arent quite enough on these dark January days.
Brazilian party with the same guy - it's quite sedate compared with Brazilian parties in my imagination but the violin playing is just lovely.
This is also the perfect music to brighten winter days:
Guappecarto, as introduced to me by my friend Melissa. One day I will see these guys live.... somewhere in Europe.
Busking in France. I hope to do some busking myself this summer but I will certainly not be as good as these fantastic musicians.
I guess I should not get into the habit of these YouTube posts as who has time to go through watching a load of videos on a blog? No one.. but, as disclaimer, I will say now - I will only post videos I've watched many times and absolutely ADORE, so if you share my taste you should appreciate a few of them.
