Nick America #8: Helder Guimaraes

over 2 years ago

Helder Guimaraes is an award winning magician and a really interesting well traveled guy. He hails from Portugal but has lived and worked all over the world doing his unique and amazing work. Helder and I sat down in a park in Studio City, CA to talk about his approach to his art and how traveling and seeing the world has informed his view of people and life. I learned a new word in Portugese: 'saudade' and it introduced me to the 'fado' genre of music that is based mostly on its meaning. All that and more. Visit thisishelder.com and check out Helder's work and make sure to see him live the next chance you get. Subscribe, rate and review Nick America on iTunes. Thanks and see you next week!
