CD- Ceilidhcatu - NordEste/NorthEast

Artist: Allysson Velez

Project: Nordeste/North East - Ceilidhcatu

A rich mix of ancient and contemporary music, merging Ceilidh and Maracatu.

In autumn 2012 we worked with percussionist Mestre Allysson Velez, who joined us from Recife in the North East of Brazil.

During his residency he explored the cultural similarities and traditions of his home state of Pernambuco in the North East of Brazil with those of Huntly and the North East of Scotland. Allysson worked with local musicians of all genres towards the recording of the NordEste / NorthEast CD.
