Bio

Borges Machado is André Borges (saxophone, flute, handmade wind instruments, body) and Fernando Machado (guitar, cavaquinho, percussion, body), both Brazilian musicians based in Brighton, England. The duo’s repertoire is based in rhythmic and harmonic influences from their homeland. It brings a mix of songs from great composers of Brazilian popular music (Tom Jobim, Hermeto Pascoal, Airto Moreira) and well-known songs of popular domain, as well as some of their own compositions. Samba, Baião, Salsa and Ciranda are some of the vibrant Latin American rhythms they use to invite the audience into a musical trip to Brazilian culture during their concerts.
