Bruno Chaveiro(N. 30 August, 1993)
Bruno Chaveiro was born in Morges, a small town in Switzerland, in 1993. Son of Portuguese emigrants, he has always “missed” his home. This feeling was the starting point for the fact that, when he was only 7 years old, back in Portugal, he started to learn the classic guitar in his parents' native land, Montemor-o-Novo. Since then, Fado has been part of his life. At 11 he performs for the first time on stage. Later, at the age of 15, he dares to try the Portuguese guitar, falling in love immediately. Then he began to study and focus on this instrument, leaving the classic guitar more and more behind. In 2010 he started to dedicate himself exclusively to the Portuguese guitar, at only 17 years old, starting to be requested by some fado houses in Lisbon.
In 2016, he finished his degree in Portuguese Guitar at the Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco with a maximum score (20 points in the instrument's execution) and assumed Lisbon as his right address.
He has collaborated with some of the most respected artists in the Portuguese music scene, such as Raquel Tavares, Mísia, Pedro Moutinho, Fábia Rebordão, Jorge Fernando, Celeste Rodrigues, Carminho, Cuca Roseta, Buba, Marco Rodrigues and Ana Laíns, among others. At the same time, he became a resident musician at "Casa de Linhares", where he regularly works with Jorge Fernando.
“Desatino” is his debut solo album. Recently launched, it is born out of the instrumentalist's desire to share his own creations and the songs he chooses as his favorites with the public. This will is allied to 17 years of experience in Fado, 10 years playing Portuguese guitar and 5 years traveling around the world in favor of Fado and Traditional Portuguese Music. An innovative album in terms of repertoire and arrangements, while evoking the heritage of some of the greatest Portuguese guitarists such as Fontes Rocha, José Nunes, Domingos Camarinha, Casimiro Ramos and Custódio Castelo, in addition to his own repertoire and compositions.
