More Naudo


He began to play guitar at age five. He belongs to a family of musicians, but never went to any school or music conservatory. He’s an autodidact. He learned to play guitar by jamming with other musicians, and he played all musical styles.

He worked with various musician groups in Recife, Bahia and Rio de Janeiro (Brasil), recording the album “Vento Norte” with the group Karetas, which was No. 1 in sales in Brasil in 1982.

In 1989 he decided to cross the Atlantic Ocean with his brother, who is also a musician. They worked in Lisbon for two years, dedicating themselves to Afro-Brazilian music.

In 1992 he made a tour for Spain with the orchestra Linea Continua, participating in the “Autumn Jazz” of Zamora (Castilla) where he played with saxophonist Quique Macias.

Since 1993 he has been living on Tenerife Island where he works playing jazz clubs, hotels and cultural centers and participating as a guitarist in recordings for several artists. In 2002 he recorded a CD entitled “Alone with my guitar”.

He is also part of the band Madeira Choro with other Spanish musicians dedicated to Brazilian music.

His guitar is a semi-acoustic electric Alhambra.


A bit from Naudo's blog...
Naudo Nights in White Satin
Naudo's Youtube account has been permanently canceled. The appeal was dismissed by the European yutube director. Our claim used the argument that to accuse him of copyright infringement for videos that are also played by other musicians on your tube is an injust discrimination. And, that alone would justify the removal of that specific material, but not the closing of the account. Youtube apologized, but explained its clause in which they are forced to cancel your account if any of these record labels (Universal Music Group, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Warner Music and EMI), make a specific request. They canceled the account and enforced it by law.

“Summer time” was uploaded two year ago, then the complaint was a treacherous apology, used to closed the account. In this case the complaint came from Warner Music.

Naudo had near 14.000 suscriptors and he was the leader in Spain against futbol clubs, and even the best television stations. That is a problem for them, cause meny people are changing their habits, and begin to spend more of his time on internet looking for new artists who choose freedom and are not bound by the channel programming. Someone felt annoyed because Naudo was gaining too much fame...

Naudo was very sad, and we were exploring other ways, because I think that is possible, that his talent can be shared by the good music lovers in the world. We consider it is an expropriation without payment of the worst dictatorship, youtube took all the Naudo´s material.

Well after spending hours looking for solutions, we decided work with another video sharing page,, that is not amercian, and further away of the USA music multinationals which include much of the music that Nuado plays, and where you can talk with human person. They will review and approve the video first, before exhibiting it.

Kaki King's Adamas steel string acoustic is set up for tapping. She gets very little ring from the "wrong" side of the string. Joe Satriani recorded midnight with a bandana tied around the neck of the guitar at the second fret, to eliminate the ring from the wrong side of the string.

I have to say I freaking love this. The whistling, the brass, the conversation in the middle of a live radio broadcast. Fantastic.
