Nilze Carvalho first picked up the cavaquinho at 5 years of age, and at 6 played on television (twice). She recorded her first record, Choro de Menina, at 12 (the title is literally "Girl's Cry", but the Portuguese word for "cry", "choro", also refers to a beautiful and difficult style of music, something akin to Brazilian jazz). Nilze turned to mandolin and by 14 years of age had recorded a series of four more records, in two of them accompanied by the most famous choro group in Brazil (Época de Ouro).
She has since recorded and toured widely, and has appeared alongside Brazil's most highly respected sambistas and chorões (choro players). Her latest CD is O Que é Meu (What is Mine), released through Biscoito Fino.
