Raised in Rio and New York City Can Sylvio Fraga Call Himself a Carioca?

July 17, 213 - Songwriter Sylvio Fraga joins us today singing with his Trio. His music definitely has samba underneath but also a hefty dose of American singer-songwriters.

When you hear about his upbringing both in Rio and in New York it makes more sense. Fraga is also a poet with a masters in the subject from NYU. He recently released his debut album Rosto which he is making available for free at his website sylviafraga.com.br.
