To do that, he always takes the region personality and promotes new tenders and new repertoire. To keep the same structure of the traditional orchestra, he uses the same materials like woods, metals and strings. At the same time, he introduces some local instruments like xequeres and tambourines. The most important principal is the music gives the great result, nuances symphony and the African arrangement identity. With his creation of the studio in 2007, which called Nucleo de Moderno de Musical, became an easy way to develop orchestra because he can able to gather teachers and students who are interested. The orchestra of Afro Symphony was established in 2008. Brazil is always poor in forming big or small classic orchestra. Brazilian is able to form a smaller group, where the afro is able to that, with cameratas and singers. Without any obligations, through learning and democratic, in this way create a unique character which never appeared before in Brazil. This is the expansion of the Brazilian identity with trademark of the region without losing any of the Bhiana personality and its heritage.
