RSVC is the first ever collaboration of two amazingly talented Brazilian guitarists Rio de Janeiro based Ricardo Silveira and Brooklyn based Vinicius Cantuária featured here in a series of duets. Recorded in Rio, and co produced by the players and Eduardo Chermont, RSVC features six original compositions and also features the vocals of Vinicius as well as the debut vocal performance by Ricardo who is primarily known for his wonderful guitar skills. Singer, guitarist, composer, drummer, and percussionist, Vinicius Cantuária is a well-known Brazilian musician who moved to New York in the mid-90s. He has proved himself in a number of fields, directly or indirectly linked to Brazilian music as leader of the rock band O Terco and later as one of the most important downtown New York figures, collaborating with artists such as Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, Brad Mehldau, Arto Lindsay, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot, David Byrne and Ryuichi Sakamoto. For over thirty years, guitarist Ricardo Silveira has earned international acclaim by bridging the music of his native Brazil with contemporary American jazz. In constant demand as a studio musician and musical director, Silveira has collaborated with countless masters and is equally renowned as a composer and solo artist.
