The 2021 Miami International GuitART Festival presents Amazon Guitar Orchestra from Brazil: Orquestra de Violões do Amazonas (OVAM) directed by Davi Nunes in a virtual concert.
The Amazon Guitar Orchestra (OVAM – Orquestra de Violões do Amazonas) was founded in March 2000 by Amazonas State Government, through the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy, as a new element of its cultural policy in the field of arts, offering the public the opportunity to enjoy quality guitar music, providing artistic and pedagogical art activities, expanding possibilities for disseminating the musical culture of the guitar repertoire in the Amazon to other parts of Brazil.
Considering guitar as an instrument of popular and classical use, capable of bringing together the most diverse technical and artistic interests, the Amazon Guitar Orchestra performs a repertoire from both regional folk and classical music.
Directed by Davi Nunes since 2000, the OVAM presented concerts in the State’s important cultural programs, including the program in homage to mothers, participation in the Amazonas Opera Festival; “Child time” with classic songs from animations and children’s series; “Clássico ao Violão”, and “Movie Score” film and series themes, among others.
The orchestra has toured throughout Brazil, including performances in Pará, Roraima, Rondônia and Distrito Federal, in partnership with various art organizations, such as Amazon Dance Corps (CDA), CDA Experimental Ballet and Amazonas Folklore Ballet. Among the international artists that OVAM performed together with are Duo Siqueira Lima (2011), Ana Vidovic (2012), Assad Duo (2014), and Yamandu Costa (2016).
