Grant Ziolkowski, bandolim (10-string Brazilian mandolin), and Cesar Garabini, 7-string acoustic guitar, lead this infectious Brazilian trio. With handheld pandeiro percussion, the trio brings the 150+ year-old choro genre to life, combining syncopated mandolin, contrapuntal guitar runs and samba rhythms. While they draw from the classics of Brazil's oldest urban musical genre, they also foray into the jazz stylings of choro novo.
