“Chorinho Na Gafieira” is a beautiful choro/samba written by Astor Silva, and in this video, Ian Coury, who teaches Brazilian Choro Mandolin on Peghead Nation, plays the tune with the talent-packed band of Valério Xavier on pandeiro, William Ribeiro on cavaquinho, and Fernando César on seven-string guitar.  Ian, who plays his signature Pedro Santos ten-string bandolim, teaches this tune in his Brazilian Choro Mandolin course!

Ian CouryIn Brazilian Choro Mandolin with Ian Coury, you’ll learn to play Brazilian choro music on the mandolin, from the classic sounds of Jacob do Bandolim to the modern style of Hamilton Holanda. The course includes detailed notation/tablature, new lessons every month, and play-along tracks with Ian’s stellar Brazilian backing band.

Ian recently released Bora Brasil, an excellent nine-tune album with yet another talented backing band. He has been accruing professional awards and accolades since 2014, when he shared a stage with Brazilian choro legends Armandinho and Hamilton de Holanda at the age of 12. Today, he’s one of Brazil’s most-respected virtuosos of the ten-string mandolin. As he continues to push the boundaries of the instrument and of the choro genre, he has performed with such luminaries as Paquito D’Rivera, Claudio Roditi, and Toninho Horta, and has recently received two important awards: “Best Instrumentalist” in the National FM Radio Festival (2020), and second place (by popular vote) in Brazil’s eFestival (2021), both for performances of original compositions.
