Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. One of Brazil's earliest popular musical forms, dating to the late 1800s, choro is similar to jazz in reflecting the melding of African rhythms. Choro's melodic and harmonic structure resembles Baroque classical music.
Grupo Falso Baiano includes Zack Pitt-Smith, reeds; Brian Moran, 7-string guitar; Ami Molinelli, percussion; and Eva Scow, mandolin.
