A Berklee School of Music alumni, Hiromi Suda developed a keen interest in Brazilian music while studying there. During the summer of 2007, she spent 3 months in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, honing her skills in Brazilian music styles and instruments. Her experience in Brazil was highly rewarding, not only musically, but it gave a historical and cultural context to her passion for the music. Suda attended a choro school, Escola Portatil de Musica, studying the pandeiro (hand frame drum) with pandeiro players Jorginho Silva and Celsinho Silva, and MPB vocal style with singer-songwriter Suely Mesquita. Hiromi Suda combines the classical qualities of intricate phrasing and attention to emphasis and timing, with a melodic and harmonic complexity that reminds of bossa nova. Suda lives and works in New York City.
