About Tio Chorinho

Toronto’sTio Chorinho is the first ensemble in Canada dedicated to performing Brazilian choro music. Performing prolifically across southern Ontario and parts of the US, their debut album Chora Brazil earned two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations. Tio Chorinho’s growing profile has been bolstered by official showcase selections at recent industry conferences like Folk Music Ontario, Global Toronto and World Music Fest, Taiwan.  

Primarily an instrumental style considered the original Brazilian soul music, the band combines popular and classical European styles with Afro-Brazilian influences. Choro is the foundation of many modern Brazilian music styles and is often described as “the New Orleans jazz of Brazil.” Exciting, energetic, soulful, intimate, nostalgic and virtuosic, choro is an infectious popular style whose universal appeal belies its musical complexity.  

The group features Carlinhos Cardozo (cavaquinho), Maninho Costa (percussion), Milos Popovic (accordion), Eric Stein (mandolin), and Andre Valerio (7-string guitar). They frequently perform with the amazing Brazilian-born, Quebec-based vocalist Flavia Nascimento, with whom they will soon make a full-length collaborative recording.
