Guitarists Nelson Latif and Bosco Oliveira (pictured left and right above) have been touring all around the world for the last six years. The musicians have different technical backgrounds: Nelson in the choro and Bosco in the Spanish flamenco.

Bosco and Nelson will give an Open Masterclass from 11:00am-noon followed by a guitar masterclass from noon–2:00pm. Observers are welcome to either or both of these sessions.

Cavaquinho and acoustic guitar player Nelson Latif formed his musical identity in the legendary jazz scene of 1980s São Paulo. With roots in choro and jazz, Latif merges Brazilian styles and a classical guitar technique with diverse musical influences. During the '90s he moved to Amsterdam and started performing on the cavaquinho, an instrument that has since become his trademark.

João Bosco de Oliveira was born in Brasília in 1967, and started his guitar studies at the age of 8. He studied at Escola de Música de Brasília and the Universidade de Brasília-UNB, graduating in 1992. Bosco Oliveira is the coordinator of the classic guitar department at the Escola de Música de Brasília, where he has been teaching since 1995.
