  • Biography

    Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Rafael Valim is a musician and composer. A graduate of EM&T (School of Music and Technology), with certificates in Fusion Guitar, Classic Guitar and Music Theory courses, Rafael plays both the 6-string guitar and the traditional Brazilian 7-string guitar. He is a versatile guitarist who performs as a soloist, accompanies singers and engages in a variety of projects.

    In Brazil, he has played in rodas de samba (samba circles), television programmes (Inglês com Música) and many private events. In 2008, he was the support for the highly acclaimed Tânia Maria in São Paulo. As his musical influences he cites the works of Garoto, Dilermando Reis, João Pernambuco and Canhoto, all accomplished Brazilian composers of the 20th century. Based in London since 2011, Rafael has performed solo and with bands in Brazil, Portugal, the UK and the Czech Republic. In the UK, he has played in London’s famous Ronnie Scott’s, Brunel Museum, Guanabara, as well as in Nottingham.

    Rafael’s unique style merges the richly eloquent classical fingering technique with delicate-sounding melodies and elaborate chords. When playing, he elegantly glides between different musical genres, interpreting the compositions with great sensitivity and emotion.
