Alvorada is an award-winning Brazilian choro quintet based in London. Our music is vibrant and uplifting, and we play choro classics and original compositions.
We recently released our debut album First Light, which got a 5* review from Songlines, and won the LUKAS and Focus Brasil awards for 'Best Brazilian Band'. Alvorada are available for private functions.
