About the artists

João Camarero

Born in 1990 in Ribeirão Preto, João Camarero was raised in the city of Avaré, Brazil, where he began his studies in music at the age of eight and on the guitar at fifteen. He studied at the Conservatory of Tatuí and at the Escola Portátil de Música of Rio de Janeiro, where he currently teaches.

Winner of several prizes, such as the 2015 MIMO Instrumental 2015 Award and the Concurso Novas, Camarero has also been nominated as one of Brazil's best musicians of 2016. He has performed throughout the world including countries such as Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium and the US.

Camarero is one of the most sought-after guitar players for his versatility and ease of transitioning from a soloist on the concert guitar to an accompanist, playing alongside many of the veteran musicians he admires.
