About The Album
De Sol a Sol explores many musical genres, from brazilian rhythms such as Frevo, Baião and Choro to Irish Dances, Jazz and Arab Influenced vibes. Revisits some of the more influential names in brazilian instrumental traditional music like Pixinguinha and Hermeto Pascoal and presents some new partnerships with modern composers of regional music, names such Luiz Morais and Samuca do Acordeon.
"It summarises my own musical quest of over 20 years searching an original voice on the violin, it celebrates this conquest" , says Felipe.
The result is an album diverse as music is in the countries he has been living, working and performing.
