While you might know more internationally famous names like Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa, the singularly named and singularly talented Dominguinhos may not be as familiar. But at SXSW, the documentary “Dominguinhos” hopes to rectify that situation, and today we have an exclusive clip.
Directed by Joaquím Castro, Eduardo Nazarian, and Mariana Aydar, the film chronicles the life of the self-taught musician who grew up in an era when music on the radio was played live. It was in that environment where Dominguinhos cut his teeth seven nights per week, and quickly learned, adapted, and was inspired by a variety of styles. No musical language was foreign to him in his hands, and in this scene from the doc, you can get a taste of his extraordinary skill.
“Dominguinhos,” produced by Brazilan production company bigBonsai, will have its first screening at SXSW on Tuesday, March 17th at the Stateside Theatre. Watch below.
