700 Boylston St
Boston, MA 02116
Together, Kely Pinheiro and Ian Coury form the Pinheiro Coury Duo, hoping to share some fun and groovy Brazilian styles that are rarely performed in a cello - bandolim configuration. Kely is a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and arranger based in Boston. She moved to the U.S. after receiving a full-tuition scholarship from Berklee College of Music. She is a classically trained cellist but grew up in a music-loving family that encouraged her to explore a variety of musical styles. To learn more, visit her Instagram page. Mandolinist Ian began his musical journey at the age of 7. At 13, he switched from the 8-string to the 10-string bandolim. However, he continued to pursue his studies in the Brazilian genre known as Choro, a style originating in the 19th century that combines European and African influences. He has already appeared in magazines, participated in international conferences, festivals, and shared the stage with renowned Latin American Jazz musicians. To learn more, visit his Instagram page.
