    Fabiano Borges comes to us as a guest from the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami and the Center for Latin American Studies. Dr. Silvio dos Santos, Dr. Welson Tremura, and graduate student Diogo Carvalho will accompany the artist in one of his numbers. His concert is free and open to the public.

    FABIANO BORGES holds a master’s degree in Music from the University of Brasilia (UnB). His work is focused on the seven-string guitar, playing his own works, classical pieces and arrangements of Latin American pieces. In 2002, he received the First Prize as a composer in the IV FEMIB [Brazilian Instrumental Music Festival] with his piece called Sambossa. In June 2010, Borges was the youngest person to be honored by the Cervantes Institute in Brasilia, whose award was granted to those who have made significant contributions to Latin American culture. In 2012, his double album called Sete Cordas was prenominated for Prêmio da Música Brasileira, the most important in Brazil. In October 2012, his work was mentioned in Folha de São Paulo (one of the most important Brazilian newspapers), in relationship to the legacy of Raphael Rabello, an important Brazilian seven-string guitarist. Currently, he is a board member of Associação Brasiliense de Violão (BRAVIO), a local guitar society, which promotes guitar events in Brasilia with both Brazilian and foreign musicians. Borges has been participating in cultural events in Brazil and abroad. He has played in 14 countries, with special focus on Argentina, Peru and Spain. Borges has been commissioned to write new pieces. It is worth mentioning one of his works on the project titled Guitarra Latinoamericana, an album released by Spanish classical guitarist Gabriel Estarellas in 2013. In September 2013, Borges published his work Valsa-Choro in Italy with the prestigious editor Ut Orpheus, whose project called Extra-European Anthology belongs to the series Ciao Chitarra. In October 2013, Borges participated in XIX Guitarras del Mundo, a prestigious guitar festival organized by Argentinean guitarist Juan Falú, which is held nationwide in Argentina annually. During the festival, his DVD titled Concierto Latinoamericano [Latin American Concert] was released in Argentina. In February 2014, Fabiano Borges participated in the II Encuentro de Guitarra Identidades, a guitar event which gathered important musicians from different countries together in Havana.
