I memory of Ailton Correia: This is a fragment of a profound performance and presentation of the Berimbau that Ailton Correia gave during the Handshouse Studio Banjo Project Immersive in Norwell, MA, August 2018. This was the moment we knew we would invited Ailton to join and help lead the Banjo Project with us for years to come. We were so fortunate that he agreed and stepped up to lead with us for the the next two years. It is so hard to swallow that we must now imagine this project without. But buoyed by the passionate conviction, tenacity, and positivity he taught us, we hope to find the heart to carry on, to find others to step into sharing and exploring this history with us, and to relearn and share this complex story of the world in his memory.
