Choro was the first popular Brazilian music, emerging in the 1870s, and is the precursor to samba, bossa nova and modern popular Brazilian music. Renowned for its virtuosic musicianship and diverse rhythmic palette, it is one of the most exciting instrumental genres on the planet. Andrew Finn Magill who has been featured on NPR and PBS, moved to Brazil in 2014 to immerse himself in Brazilian choro music. Magill was signed to Ropeadope Records in 2018 for his original Brazilian music project He followed up that release in 2021 with the sequel Festa! Says legendary Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreira (Miles Davis, Chick Corea, etc): "He can fool you into thinking he is from Brazil!"

On the 7-string guitar is Brazilian-born Cesar Garabini, who moved to New York City in 2011 to expand his musical knowledge. Since then, he has performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Jazz Standard, Birdland, Columbia University, and the Museum of Modern Art. He has worked with Anat Cohen, Olli Soikkeli, Leny Andrade and Marcos Sacramento among others and has been featured on NPR, NBC and Brazil's national TV network Globo.

On bandolim (Brazilian mandolin) is Ian Coury, who has been accruing professional awards and accolades since age 12. At 20 years old, he is one of Brazil’s most-respected virtuosos on the 10-string mandolin. As he continues to push the boundaries of the instrument and of the choro genre, he has performed with such luminaries as Hamilton de Holanda, Paquito D’Rivera, Claudio Roditi, and Toninho Horta, and in the past two years has received two important awards: “Best Instrumentalist” in the National FM Radio Festival (2020), and second place (by popular vote) in Brazil’s eFestival (2021), both for performances of original compositions
