Musician

Hamilton de Holanda

Born:

Virtuosic, brilliant and unique – those are some of the adjectives used to describe this musician who sets world audiences ablaze, developing a career studded with awards.

Hamilton de Holanda uses the past 14 years to establish a technique for reinventing the 10 string Mandolin. He compose 24 Caprices for the mandolin and disentangled this emblematic Brazilian instrument from the legacy of some of its influences and styles, to make it a global instrument. In the US, the press soon dubbed him the “Jimi Hendrix of bandolim”.

At the age of 38, 33 years as a professional musician, de Holanda has evolved a characteristic way of playing, a character. His phrasing, the extra strings and his powerful sound, combined to the speed of the solo passages and improvisations, are inspiring a new generation and a new sound.
