For this battle I’ve chosen two young guitarists playing "Tico-Tico no Fubá," a Brazilian choro written by Zequinha de Abreu in 1917. You might remember it from Ethel Smith’s 1944 version from a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, here are our contestants:
The actual song starts about 58 seconds into the video, and there’s about a minute worth of bloopers at the end.
Lucas is new to me, and I think I’ll spend some time getting to know him and his music.
Those are our contestants. Here are the directions:
- Listen to the two songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
I’ll tally the votes and announce the winner next Friday, October 8, so be sure and get your vote in to me by then, if you wish.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Paola and Lucas!
