Finally the long expected cd of Cariopa is out!!

Cariopa is a unique group of musicians who are seen as the ambassadors of Brazilian choro in the Netherlands. The members of Cariopa are also part of the teaching staff of EPM Holanda.
In an authentic setting of seven-string guitar, cavaquinho, flute and pandeiro they share their passion for choro and samba through original compositions and arrangements of the classics.
This month they release their debut album on which they are heard with various guest soloists and vocalists, whit whom they often also play live performances, such as Julião Pinheiro Rabello, Lilian Vieira and Fulvia di Domenico.
Cariopa already played at various venues and festivals in the Netherlands and in Brazil.
The album "Noites Cariopas" is released under the label ACARI Records, one of the leading labels for Brazilian choro music. The distribution in Europe is by Harmonia Mundi.
The CD is available in stores from September 2015 or via internet.
