Instruments of Choice: Sirius S-64C, Fabulous F-20

Over 25 years ago, while noticing his growing interest in the black roots of blues and jazz, Pablo Fagundes discovered the diatonic harmonica. Later on, the singularities and challenges of Brazilian music motivated him to develop a bond with the chromatic harmonica. Only a few musicians in the global music scene can play both genres with such expertise.

Pablo has several albums under his name and an extensive international experience that includes performances in Europe, Australia and North America. He has played with well-known musicians, such as Belgian harmonica player Toots Thielemans, multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Paschoal, guitarist Toninho Horta, mandolinists Hamilton de Holanda, David Grisman, and Grammy Award winners Howard Levy and Peter Mad Cat.

A graduate from the Brasilia School of Music, in 2006 Pablo devised and implemented a chromatic harmonica course at the Choro Club of Brasilia, where he is also a music coordinator. Furthermore, he launched a DVD entitled "Learn to Play Harmonica in Brazilian Music" and has taught at Brazilian music workshops for students and teachers held in the Americas and Europe.
