Thursday May 3rd, 2018 with David Dalle
Guest, cellist Catherine Bent joins me to discuss her new release of Brazilian music recorded in Rio de Janeiro. Other amazing and adventurous cellists.

Cellist Catherine Bent has released her first album "Ideal", which showcases her tremendous love and study of Brazilian music, particularly Choro. She discovered this music as an adult, and her cello is not a typical Choro instrument, however, after many summers spent studying the music in its birthplace, Rio de Janeiro, Choro has become an essential part of her. This album features all her original compositions recorded with her Brazilian colleagues in Rio.
Pixinguinha, Clementina de Jesus, Joao de Baiana - Gente Da Antiga - Odeon
