As a band, we have played together for the past 6 months in various clubs in New Orleans. Individually, three members have studied and played Forro, Choro, Samba, and Jazz since childhood (two being native Brazilians). The other two members have been playing for twenty years each in a variety of different genres and bands in New Orleans.
Our clients have mainly been bars, clubs, and restaurants in New Orleans - especially on Frenchman Street and Ste. Claude.
