Hamilton De Holanda
Hamilton De Holanda
“He is the personification of everything we want in a musician, not just a great musician. He plays well, has good reflexes, knows how to listen, has a natural way of playing. He has depth of soul and feeling. He is a national treasure!” - Wynton Marsalis

Virtuosic, brilliant and unique - those are some of the adjectives used to describe this musician who sets world audiences ablaze. Hamilton de Holanda is one of the most acclaimed Brazilian contemporary musicians, known for his tour-de-force compositions and stunning command of his instrument. He started to play professionally at the age of 5 in 1981. Hamilton's curiosity and restless mind reinvented the image and sound of the bandolim (mandolin) by adding two extra strings (a pair of low Cs). This lead him to create a new technique and language for this emblematic Brazilian instrument, elevating and transforming the legacy and style of the bandolim into a global instrument. De Holanda has inspired new musicians and luthiers all over the world to build and explore the possibilities of the 10-string bandolim.

The repertoire will extend from Hamilton’s new compositions to his tributes to Chico Buarque and Milton Nascimento, to his love for Baden Powell, Jacob do Bandolim and Pixinguinha.
