Dobrado, Ponto, e Maracatu is a work for brass ensemble by the Brazilian composer Osvaldo Lacerda. Like much of Lacerda’s catalog, it features refined artistic depictions of Brazilian musical nationalism, resulting from his extensive knowledge of the characteristics of the music of his native country, combined with training in composition and orchestration received through study in the United States with such luminaries as Vittorio Giannini and Aaron Copland.
