One of the leading figures in modern Brazilian music, guitarist, composer, and arranger Chico Pinheiro was born in São Paulo. Self-taught, Pinheiro started playing the guitar and the piano when he was seven years old. After starting to perform professionally at age 15, he rounded out his musical education with a stay in Boston, where he received his music degree from Berklee College of Music, studying with legendary teachers Mick Goodrick and Hal Crook and winning several academic and musical prizes during his studies.

Grupo Falso Baiano

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.
