Diversity and musicianship are the keystones of the Malandro roster. Exemplifying this is the sextet Terra Brasil and their album Mestico (Mestizo). Their ensemble jazz is rich in Brazilian styles and the frantic energy of an urban populace. Originating from bustling Sao Paulo, they uniquely blend traditional Brazilian rhythms and traditional jazz. This is the dynamic paulista swing.
