Ami’s love of Choro music has led to the collaboration and formation of Grupo Falso Baiano, a group that plays Choro and contemporary Brazilian music spanning nearly 100 years. This group includes 7-string guitarist Brian Moran, formerly of “Blowout,” mandolinist Jesse Appelman, and reed player Zach Pitt-Smith. Grupo Falso Baiano, (GFB), just released their second CD in 2010, “Simplicidade- Live at Yoshi’s” which features Jovino Santos Neto. Visit Grupo Falso Baiano to learn more.

Ami is currently an endorsee with LP and RhythmTech.
