    Wonderful as always. And she plays piano, and she’s done the artwork on at least one of their cds. Such a treat to hear.

    Amazing! And great camerawork- how cool to see both left and right hand technique up close. I'm not so familiar with Choro so it was Django who sprang to my mind. Thank you!

    Beautiful tune played exquisitely. I saw Choro das 3 quite a few years ago n New York City and Elisa was excellent back then and is even more impressive now. What a treat!

    Very nice indeed. Kind of meditative. I thought the use of the looper was well done. It supported the tune without being intrusive. Great sound as well. Thanks Joe!

    Thanks for these great posts, Elisa. And for the wonderful interview on the Mandolins and Beer podcast last week. I loved listening to you explain your points by playing short pieces on your mandolins. Great stuff!

    I love listening to Elisa play the Mandolin. I love watching her too!! I can only dream of playing as good as she does. It's nice to read and hear of the people that influenced her. Much love Elisa!!

    Just discovering this series! What a great idea - I am so happy to see it. I love your writing style, and think Mandolin Cafe is a perfect way for choro lovers to experience these anecdotes, mixed in with excellent examples of the tunes as they are mentioned. Your integrity, not only as a player, but also as a broadly curious person who combines deep knowledge and high standards, shines in this forum. More please! Thanks Mandolin Cafe

    Superb - I've seen a number of pics of Monteleones over the years, but not much audio. I get it now. Thanks for this added dimension.
