Brazilian Endowment for the Arts, inside the series Music & Música, presents a choro concert with Regional de NY this Friday, March 2 at 8pm.

The five members of Regional de NY are dedicated to bringing the culture of Brazilian choro music to New York City with their regular performances and public choro jams.
Regional de NY is:
Justin Douglas (mandolin)
Rodrigo Ursaia (flute and sax)
Kahil Nayton (cavaquinho)
Cesar Garabini (seven strings guitar)
Ranjan Ramchandani (percussion)
