Danilo Brito

A mandolin virtuoso and composer, the supremely gifted Danilo Brito explores the unique cultural tradition of choro music from his native Brazil. With 19th-century origins, choro is an instrumental form marked by virtuosity, improvisation, syncopation and counterpoint. It’s considered by many the first Brazilian genre of popular music. A child prodigy, Brito did not take formal lessons until age 12 and still retains much of the natural expressionism he developed as a child playing rodas de choro (Brazilian jam sessions).

 

Supremely gifted.
