Toco Rio is a Milwaukee based instrumental duo featuring Linda Binder on bandolim (the
Brazilian version of a mandolin), and guitarist Jeff Binder.
repertoire consists mainly of music from the beautiful choro tradition
of Brazil. Choro is an expressive and often joyful style, rich in
rhythmic, harmonic and melodic variety.
We have enjoyed performing in
the Milwaukee and Chicago area as a duo, and occasionally in an expanded
version of the group, with added hand percussion, bass, and flute.
