Album Notes
“Continuous Friendship” is the first recorded collaboration from two
of Brazil’s most vital young composers and instrumentalists: 31 year-
old pianist Andre Mehmari and 32 year-old mandolinist Hamilton de
Holanda. The CD features a collection of eleven tracks comprised of
spirited original compositions and imaginative interpretations of
songs by such renowned composers as Enrico Morricone, Guinga, and
Egberto Gismondi, as well as three bonus tracks that capture the
spontaneity and creativity of the duo’s first rehearsal for the

Winner of the 1997 VISA MPB prize, Andre Mehmari is considered one of
the most talented young musicians in his native Brazil. His activities
as pianist, composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist are highly
regarded both in popular and classical music. His works have been
performed by Brazilian orchestras (OSESP) and chamber ensembles (Sro
Paulo String Quartet,) and he continues to impress audiences
internationally with his blend of virtuosity and vitality.

Latin Grammy nominee (for his Adventure Music release, Brasilianos)
Hamilton de Holanda is considered among the greatest virtuosi to ever
play the instrument. In just a few years of touring and recording,
Hamilton has already performed with some of the top names in acoustic
music and jazz. He has worked with Mike Marshall, Hermeto Pascoal,
João Bosco, Marco Pereira, Richard Galliano and Cesarea Evora, and has
released two CDs on Adventure Music in addition to Brasilianos: New
Words, a duet project with Mike Marshall and Intimo, a solo mandolin
CD, both to extensive critical acclaim.

Amy Burcham

What a privilege it is to be able to listen to music this exquisite. Past and future, restrained and ebulliant, every bit of this is inspired. Don't wait to get this one!


Both André and Hamilton are amazing and so are the arrangements of these beautiful classics. My guess is that both Hermeto and Egberto are very pleased.
