FRAGA SPADARO BONARIUS SCHULZ-WACKERBARTH DEIWIKS FRIDMAN
Vocalist, composer, and guitarist Rafael Fraga presents his newest release, Trova Caminhada. He writes of this album: “The word ‘Trova’ carries different meanings- sometimes music, others poetry, from the European Middle ages to Contemporary Cuban music. For me, it evokes the capacity to express something powerful, authentic and meaningful: a cry that puts things in motion- the “Caminhada,” which literally means ‘walking’ or even better, ‘outing.’ This ‘Trova Caminhada’ departs from sinuous road, filled with memories, pain and joyful celebration. It puts in perspective my adulthood, in more than fifteen years of songwriting, as “Piano Secreto” was written in 1999 and “A Ginga da Moma” in 2016, and the remaining songs in between. Until now, I made a career as guitarist and arranger; this album is a personal landmark, in which I fully embrace the role of vocalist.
