This intimate midday performance spotlights Danilo Brito’s mastery of choro. Brito on mandolin and tenor guitar is joined by Carlos Moura on 7-string guitar, Guilherme Girardi on 6-string guitar, Lucas Arantes on cavaquinho and Brian Rice on pandeiro.
Brazilian mandolinist and composer Danilo Brito has devoted his life to the tradition of choro music since the age of three, and is known for an ability far beyond technical skill that can only be defined as true art, feeling and transcendence. About Danilo and his remarkable quintet that will join him on this engagement, a Brazilian music critic recently stated, “In the 1950s and ‘60s there was a dispute between the virtuosity of Luperce Miranda and the unrivaled technique of Jacob (do Bandolim). It seems that the two are in Danilo, who became their perfect synthesis.”
