Author / Medium: „Violão de Dois“ Silvia Ocougne and Chico Mello,( OAKSMUS ) , in minimedia-modern music, 23.12.2008
Silvia Ocougne and Chico Mello insert an intelligent quirkiness into the mainstream of what is generally understood by Brazilian popular music. For them the popular music of their homeland is the musical point of departure, out of which they create their own music. Their approach to tradition is sovereign, irreverent and playful-ironic, but never contemptuous. Silvia Ocougne and Chico Mello have their fun with this music to which they stand so close and yet as musicians and composers at a distance as well.
