  • RIGHT UP OUR STREET, THIS... The Imaginary Soundtrack to a Brazilian Western Movie.

One of the greatest accordionists in Northeast Brazil, Reginaldo Alves Ferreira, better known as Camarao (Shrimp) or Maestro Camarao, was born in Fazenda Velha, Brejo da Madre de Deus, Pernambuco, on 23 June 1940. He learned to play accordion by watching the movements of his father, the accordionist Antonio Neto, who took him to parties where he played. After that, according to him, he perfected his skills by listening to Luiz Gonzaga and studying the method of Mario Mascarenhas. He played at the region’s fairs, raffles and patron festivals. He developed his artistic career in the city of Caruaru. The title of ‘Maestro’is not from his education, but rather given to him by broadcasters. At the age of 18, he met Luiz Gonzaga, whom he considers his master despite not forgetting his father’s teachings. He was a great friend and partner of the ‘rei do baiao’(‘King of Bai o’- Luiz Gonzaga’s nickname), with whom he participated in 28 recordings.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
