“Na banguela” is a Brazilian Portuguese idiom. It refers to when a driver switches to neutral gear so that the car can effortlessly coast downhill. Despite the high level of skill required to play the traditional Brazilian style known as Choro, it is with this easygoing playfulness that the group Na Banguela chooses to address their repertoire, composed of Choros by composers Jacob do Bandolim, Pixinguinha, Waldyr Azevedo, Luciana Rabello, and others.
