New CD coming out by Tres Baias!!!

Três Baías is inspired by the three bays of Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco from where each of us come. This Brazilian choro trio navigates the genre with ease and playfulness but with intensity and flare.  Their creative arranging of the traditional repertoire speaks to how alive the tradition of choro is today.  This July, Três Baías celebrates the release of their first CD featuring several musical guests.


Their music harkens back to the nostalgia of the golden age of  Brazilian Choro but with a creative/international flare that reminds us just how much this music is alive today and how far it can go tomorrow in the hands of such tasteful masters.  – Mike Marshall
