Nurtured in the legacy of such great Brazilian mandolinists as Jacob do Bandolim, Joe Nascimento and Armandinho, Hamilton de Holanda is a new standard bearer for today's Brazilian Jazz . Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1976, considered by many as one of the greatest mandolinists playing the instrument, Hamilton has revolutionized the capabilities and new potential of the mandolin.

Extending the range of the instrument's capability by adding a fifth course (C strings), his harmonization is more self-contained than one might expect of the traditional bandolim, especially in the lush moments of his solo orchestration.

Newly released, his third CD, “Brasilianos" has been reviewed in the JazzMando.com “Artist Spotlight."
