Choro de Lá pra Cá is comprised of U.S. flutist, Julie Koidin and Brazilian musicians, Diogo Guanabar (mandolin, cavaquinho and guitar), and Caio Padilha (guitar, rabeca, and vocals). The trio started when flutist Julie Koidin visited Natal, Brazil in 2014 in order to research contemporary choro. The musical chemistry was immediate. Each musician comes from a completely different musical background – Julie with her classical training, Diogo growing up with choro and having a strong interest in jazz, and Caio who has an affinity for folkloric music and a background in theater. What the musicians truly enjoy is adding their own unique perspective to their arrangements and their own compositions. They will be joined by Camila Masiso, a Brazilian singer from Natal. This is their U.S. and Chicago debut!
