Roda de Choro on Paquetá

This video, beautifully captured by my talented husband Geoff Baldwin sums up a perfect day on the island of Paqueta, Rio de Janeiro. In 2017 my husband and I travelled the world for 8months and a part of that was to spend 1 month in Rio playing as much choro as I possible could. I spent every day at the Casa do Choro and every night playing in the rodas de choro. It was one of the most incredible times of my life. At this roda I was honoured to play with Rui Alvim - clarinet, Luiz Flavio Alcofra - guitar, Jayme Vignoli - cavaquinho and Oscar Bolão - pandeiro.
