Very rocking, man :] Sounds like so,something from the Olde Country! Are you playing banjo too? It has an interesting history. Did it come to Brazil from Africa, or through North America to Brazil?

In the United States, it has a reputation that it was an instrument only slaves played from 1600-1800. Now it is mostly associated with Country music in the United States, which is somewhat ironic! Great track, Cebe, -S

Shoham , really glad that you enjoy this piece . I believe that the Banjo arrived here from both ways but what came with it from America prevailed for what is Country and Rural Music scene in Brazil . For Samba and Pagode a 4 strings is the deal . Banjo is a wonderful instrument full of joy and American music pulses deeply into my heart . Thanks for the info my friend .

I am in Pittsburgh -- I think that there is an interesting history for you in some of the music and tradition of 19th Century music coming out of the area. Did I mention Stephen Foster before? He wrote "Oh Suzanna!" The famous lyric is "Oh Suzanna, don't you cry for me, well I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee!" He was born in my neighborhood, Lawrenceville. There is a sculpture of him not far from Lawrenceville. I think it is a strange sculpture and not flattering for many reasons, but here it is -- near where I am at the moment, in Oakland, another neighborhood in Pittsburgh: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/229/467999097_28de85582b.jpg

Here Stephen Foster is depicted as taking notes as a slave plays with a Banjo on his knee.

Thoughts??? It is a complicated history!

Sounds like the theme song for the part in the movie when the robots are commuting to work in the morning.
