We are a group of Choro Music gotten passionate for this music style, in which one gave to beginning for curiosity and fun.
The Portuguese word “sotaque” means accent, and refers to the way Choro Sotaque plays this Brazilian style with their own unique San Diego accent. The name was suggested by Brazilian music icon Mr. Hermeto Pascoal when flute player Rebecca Kleinmmann studied with him in Brazil at Brazil Camp in Ubatuba.

Stefanie Schmitz – Clarinet and Saxsophone
Joe Amato - 7-string nylon acoustic guitar;
