This video of two guitarists playing “Tico-Tico no Fubá” on one guitar is six years old, but it’s still a fresh and enjoyable bit of entertainment.
Presented by the Brazilian Music Institute, it features the Duo Siqueira Lima—guitarists Cecilia Siqueira, who is from Uruguay, and Fernando Lima, from Brazil—performing at the University of Florida in 2009. The song “Tico-Tico no Fubá” is a Brazilian piece composed by Zequinha de Abreu. The title means “Sparrow in the Cornmeal.”
For this unique performance of the song, Fernando and Cecilia created an original process of hand exchange.
