Virtuoso Brazilian guitarist, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist and composer Celso Machado transports his audiences through the richness and diversity of Brazilian music and beyond. We’re thrilled to bring him back to Portland for a second rare performance at Portland’s historic Old Church.

“Celso alone is a force of nature … Up close, Celso Machado is probably the most musical person I know. He performs, composes, publishes, records, teaches, and makes music out of literally everything he touches. In his magical hands bottles of water, rocks he finds on the beach, his own body and, of course, almost any musical instrument I could name – plus some I couldn’t – sing beautiful songs. For me, Celso Machado is the truest of musical Renaissance men and the ultimate one-man band.” -Malcolm Gould, producer of Jogo da Vida and the program OnStage at Glenn Gould Theatre, CBC Records

Stunning and heartening live video of Celso’s amazing performances here.

    The best reason to attend might be that I really like Brazilian guitarists. However, I have honestly never heard Brazilian guitar. My reason is purely selfish. I haven’t been on a unique date with my wife since right before our 9 month old was born, and this looks like a great opportunity to explore something new that we might both enjoy. Plus a night away from the kids. WooHoo!

    I love Brazilian culture and will visit one day. Til then, being transported musically at the Old Church would be absolutely AMAZING!

    I’m a musician seeking to expand my frames of reference…new to town from Montpelier, Vermont where such opportunities are limited. As a self-employed creative, my cash is also limited but I would love to be exposed to this music!

    LOVE Brazillian guitar. What a treat to get to experience this live!

    I used to run a concert series in Seattle, and Celso Machado is AMAZING. I would love the chance to see him again!

    I was introduced to choro music about 10 years ago through playing his modern choro compositions. There is so much for me to learn from seeing this guitarist, composer, percussionist, forager of sound, whose playing is always informed by joy. Geoff Berner sounds none too shabby and it would be my first time seeing Portland’s Brazillionaires, of whom I’ve heard wonderful things.

    I just got into this guy. Great stuff. I wonder how good he is live. If it’s anything like his studio album this is sure to please.

    Malcolm Gould’s stunning review of Celso Machado has piqued my musical curiosity. Please transport me to Machado world! Viva Brazil!

    !!! This is kismet! I’ve been REALLY getting into Brazilian/Argentinean/Chilean folk music lately. Like, REALLY. Lots of Bossa Nova, too. I’d love to check this out!

    I would really love to see / hear Celso. I am a guitarist who loves all forms of music, especially Brazilian music. It would be very inspiring for my playing.

    I have never experienced Brazilian music or a concert at the Old Church — I’d really enjoy the experience for both those reasons!!
