Marcelo Barbosa : Guitarosofia n°14, part 1 and 2

Marcelo Barbosa Official Blog, posted on 30/10/10 (English translation from Marcelo Barbosa Official English Blog) :

"Ok, tomorrow I will go to North America again, this time just to rest, to enjoy friends' company and to get to know a city that I have not had an opportunity to see before despite its attraction, Miami.

I have been working a lot at the didactic materials of GTR (Guitar Institute) as well as at the compositions for some projects I take part in. But I couldn't leave Brazil without presenting one more episode of Guitarosofia series. Once again, I had to divide one lesson into two parts due to Youtube ten-minutes limit for one video. I publish both parts at once.

Hopefully, you'll enjoy it!"

Edu Falaschi : interview Rio Metal Blog

Edu Falaschi recently gave an interview (October 2010) for Rio Metal Blog (in Portuguese), where he tells about his entire career as a singer and a producer, about various aspects of his work in Angra and Almah, and pre-Angra career. Edu also speaks about the metal scene in Brazil and other interesting subjects.

Here is the English translation of the interview made by Irina Ivanova from Edu Falaschi Official Website ! Thanks a lot Irina :)

Rio Metal Blog : Edu, when and how did you start to get involved in the music ?

Edu Falaschi : Since I was born, because my father was a musician, not a professional one. But by the time I was 17, I got my first experience of playing in a band.

Rio Metal Blog : How did you get to Rock/Heavy Metal and what are your biggest influences?

Edu Falaschi : It happened due to my cousins who were Iron Maiden fans. By the time I was 12, I bought my first metal albums. My main influence as a singer is Dio.

Rio Metal Blog : Edu, as far as I know, your first band was Mitrium in 1990. What do you remember about that time? What are the most significant differences between the underground scene of that period of time and the modern reality?

Edu Falaschi : Everything was too magic, all of us were real dreamers, everything was more difficult without the Internet, but even in those conditions just a year after we started, Mitrium recorded its first LP. The fact is that it was almost impossible for a metal band of that time. Besides having a lot of fun, we also worked hard.

Edu Falaschi tells about Almah on Rio Metal Blog

From Almah Official Myspace :

"Edu Falaschi revealed a few details about the past and the future of his band ALMAH in the recent interview for Rio Metal Blog (Rio de Janeiro / Brazil, October 2010). Edu told about Almah among other matters such as the new Angra’s album, the work in the band over the years and his pre-Angra career, also the singer mentioned some other interesting facts and ideas.

Check out the part of the interview about Almah:

Rio Metal Blog : "When and how did you decide to establish Almah?

Edu Falaschi : In 2006 I launched Almah as a solo album. Then, while being without activities with Angra, I decided to transform Almah into a real band. And it really turned to be a mega band, because our musicians are excellent and super talented, besides being friends and doing everything with a great love and inspiration.

Rio Metal Blog : To record the first Almah album you invited worldwide famous musicians, how did you make it possible?

Edu Falaschi : They are friends of mine.

Rio Metal Blog : How did you get along with them?

Edu Falaschi : Perfectly, they are great guys! It was an honor for me! I liked to visit them in USA and Finland. I adored everything! I made this CD exclusively for myself, without any pretense, it is a pure soul (“alma” means soul in Portuguese).

Rio Metal Blog : Making the 2nd album you already had musicians from Brazil, and it looked like that in the end, the project turned to be a real band. How did you get to this line-up?

Edu Falaschi : At that moment, I had already known all of them quite a long time, only Paulo was pointed out by Moreira.

Rio Metal Blog : How could you sum up “Fragile Equality” tour? I believe it has been very satisfactory, at least I was at the show in Circo Voador here in Rio de Janeiro and I found that the response of the public was really good.

Edu Falaschi : It has been quite cool. Clearly, we would have liked to have an international tour and even more shows in Brazil. But there’s time for everything. Soon we will start working at a new CD, the third album of Almah, and maybe some international tour can happen then.

Rio Metal Blog : If I’m not mistaken, you mentioned at that show in Rio that the song Torn could have been left out of the album, but Felipe Andreoli insisted to include it. Could you explain?

Edu Falaschi : Yes, it’s right, I believed that this song was too much heavy to fit the style of the rest of the album, but I was completely wrong (smile). That is why the best solution for any band is to discuss everything in a democratic way.

Rio Metal Blog : Edu, do you already have in mind a new album for Almah?

Edu Falaschi : Yes, to do it soon!"
