Elomar is one of the most personal Brazilian composers. He expresses in music the culture of his region, a part of the northeast that has developed through the centuries a spoken dialect and a musical folklore based in medieval modal influences received by successive waves of European invaders. His production has an ambivalent quality, at the same time unpolished and sophisticated. His violão playing is very authoritative (in his style), as he had classical formation. (amg)
