Formed in 2011, Trio Brasileiro quickly made a name for itself as an ensemble worthy of international attention. And, after four recordings and successful tours through Europe and North and South America, they are receiving more than their share of it. Among the many accolades, their 2017 recording with the brilliant Israeli clarinetist Anat Cohen, Rosa Dos Ventos, was nominated for a Grammy for Best World Music Album, and was named one of the top twenty jazz recordings of the year in the Downbeat Readers’ Poll.

Trio Brasileiro’s stunning virtuosity is matched with remarkable musicianship and a deep devotion to the language of music to achieve a compelling sound that shares equal parts understated subtlety and bone deep groove. But it is their love of the traditional music of Brazil and the connection between brothers – by birth and by bonds of friendship – that create a very rare and profound beauty.
Half of the highly regarded Brazilian Choro ensemble, Caraivana, Trio Brasileiro includes the celebrated guitarist and full time member of the award-winning Brasil Guitar Duo, Douglas Lora; one of Brazil’s finest mandolin virtuosos, Dudu Maia; and the master of Brazilian percussion and Hand Pan virtuoso, Alexandre Lora.
Trio Brasileiro is dedicated to performing the great traditional choro music of Brasil by Jacob do Bandolim, Ernesto Nazareth and others, as well as their own compositions, which are modern reflections of that great traditional musical form.
“These master musicians perform choro, a style of Brazilian music featuring samba rhythms, beautiful melodies and lightning fast tempos layered over jazzy harmonies.” - Pamela Beaty, Portland Community College Music Instructor
