New music, new arrangements - choro and samba!

Duo Violão + 1 is a choro and samba trio with acclaimed guitar master Rogerio Souza on 7-string guitar (Paulinho da Viola, Ney Matagrosso, Baden Powell, etc), Edinho Gerber (Som Brasil, Renato Anesi Trio, Ben Lamar-Gay, etc,) and percussionist Ami Molinelli (Grupo Falso Baiano, Jovino Santos-Neto, Kenny Washington, etc.). Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. Choro is one of Brazils earliest popular musics, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music.

G.F.B.s exploration of choro spans nearly 100 years, including everything from the traditional to more contemporary versions and jazz influenced reinterpretations. In addition to performing and touring, Grupo Falso Baiano has worked in collaboration with the Pasadena Pops, Around the World Music Program, Young Audiences of Northern CA, and Youth in Arts, to bring choro and Brazilian music to students throughout California.
