Friday Night Live! Danilo Brito Quartet
As a young prodigy, Danilo Brito would play the bandolim, a Brazilian-style mandolin, alongside his elders at rodas de choro—informal gatherings of musicians that celebrated Brazil’s popular choro music style.
He quickly earned comparisons to Brazil’s pioneering mandolin player Jacob do Bandolim, from whom the bandolim takes its name. For this performance, Danilo Brito performs in a quartet setting with collaborators on seven-string guitar, six-string guitar, and pandeiro (percussion).
