Choro is the traditional Brazilian instrumental music from the beginning of the 20th century. Choro Bastardo combines the traditional Choro style with each of the band members' different musical and cultural backgrounds to create a sonority that is different from the original, yet loyal to the playful spirit of that music. Using Baroque, early Jazz, and Contemporary Classical music as springboard, Choro Bastardo explores the different streams of music that can somehow share elements with the Choro tradition, recreating the atmosphere of cabarets and vaudeville in Rio de Janeiro.

Composer, arranger, bassist, and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Blickenderfer has made noise with a variety of ensembles for CDs, radio, TV, webcasts, film, clubs, and concert halls across North America. You be just as likely to catch him laying down “a bass solo that owes a lot to Jimi Hendrix” (Fanfare Magazine) with one of his bands as you would playing cello at a house concert, strolling violin, Italian mandolin, Klezmer banjo, Bach continuo, or an improv jam session.
