I want to help

Eduardo Negrao

My passion for music started early, when I was 4 years old, I think. I remember my uncle Mario putting me on his lap and trying to show me the instruments in the orchestra: Look Du, this is a bassoon...how beautiful...now here come the French horns...notice how he repeats the theme only with the strings...look how the flute dialogs with the oboe...I didn�'t understand anything, but I loved music!

My mother liked Chico Buarque, Elton John and Nina Simone a lot. My father liked Bach, Beethoven and Vivaldi. I liked Os Saltimbancos, Pica Pau Amarelo and Toquinho and Vinicius.

At the age of six I got a walkman from my father and that was really important! From this moment on I started to listen to music non-stop, not even to sleep, I slept listening to music. Many times my mother would remove the earphones when I was already asleep. I remember loving Djavan, Milton and Stevie Wonder.
