The guitarist Mayara Amaral, was murdered this week in a motel in Campo Grande, Brazil.

The suspect is a fellow-musician and former lover, who made off with her car.

Mayara, who was 27, wrote her dissertation on ‘The woman composer and the guitar in the 1970s’ and was passionate about contemporary music in Brazil. She formed a quartet and continued to engage in research and teaching.
