Levi Ramiro

Tune in this Wednesday at 11PM and listen to the music of Brazilian guitarrist and composer Levi Ramiro, along with an exclusive interview recorded at Ramiro's home this past June by WKCR's very own Jassvan DeLima and Augusto Ghiotto. Along with composing, performing, and promoting the Brazilian regional music known as "Sertanejo de Raiz," Ramiro is known for making his own guitar-like instruments out of a fruit called cabaça, also used in the berimbau, a traditional Brasilian instrument.

Check out additional photos, video, and general information on the official Som do Brasil blog.
