Silvia Nicolatto and the Anglo-Cornish Band
In 2011, Silvia Nicolatto, Pete Turner, Pete Kubryk Townsend and Neil Davey toured in England, presenting a mix of Brazilian and Cornish music (of celtic origin). The group´s repertoir was composed of songs they wrote together, presenting as well some original compositions by group members and some Brazilian classics.
