Since 2013 I have been deeply researching the works of Aníbal Augusto Sadinha, a.k.a. Garoto (1915-1955). I have written a master thesis about him during my studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and since then I have engaged and tooked part a few important projects, aiming to spread his music around Brazil and the around the world. Garoto , one of the most respected Brazilian guitarist, multi instrumentalists and prolific composers has an immeasurable importance in the development of Brazilian music and deserves to be more studied, performed and heard of.

Along with researcher Jorge Mello and guitarist Domingos Teixeira, we released in 2017 this Songbook with 67 compositions by Garoto, full of rich information about his life and works. We spent approximately 3 years working on transcriptions of original manuscripts and recordings of Garoto's repertoire. We also worked on creating harmonizations for his compositions that had only a written melody, without any indication of chords or accompaniment. Beatriz Paes Leme, Paulo Aragão, and Marcílio Lopes collaborated in the final revisions. The book contains 67 choros by Garoto, including 14 unpublished ones, as well as a biographical summary, information about the compositions, a complete catalog of compositions organised by Jorge Mello, and further texts by Paulo Bellinatti and myself. Order it here
