About Cantaloupe Music Productions

We believe in live music — for you!

For 15 years, Cantaloupe Music Productions, Inc. has been an extensive resource for the best in live Brazilian music, booking top Brazilian musicians in the United States, as well as from Brazil.

In addition to Brazilian music, we offer a selection of other musical genres.  You’ll find some of the best of the area’s Latin music (Argentine tango, Cuban, Venezuelan, Peruvian, Columbian — even a traditional Puerto Rico bolero trio), danceable contemporary African music, as well as superb American jazz, blues and swing ensembles, and classical duos/trios/quartets.

We are proud to be Management for Latin GRAMMY winner Pedro Giraudo and his tango ensembles.

Headed by Ellen Azorin, an exceptionally knowledgeable and attentive music professional, Cantaloupe is the place to turn to for any type of event, large or small, whatever your tastes. She can guide you through the process, assist you with details, help you think through how the music can best serve your event — in short, provide you with what one of our clients summed up as “incredible dedication and skill — it’s great to work with you!”

Cantaloupe Music Productions is large enough to handle your event of any size, yet small enough to give you the focused, personal attention you deserve. We’ve booked a “batucada” of 40 Brazilian drummers performing their thunderous rhythms outside the New York Stock Exchange at 7:30 AM to celebrate the listing of the first Brazilian firm on the NYSE; we’ve booked the best solo pianists, guitarists, small ensembles with and without vocals; we’ve booked scores of weddings, corporate and private parties; and for the last 8 years, we’ve booked a 10-piece carnaval formation that has performed to audiences of many thousands at the largest Carnaval celebration in the United States.

Because we represent so many different ensembles, our expert music consulting service will help you find the one that’s right for your event, rather than trying to sell you one particular band. If you already know what you want, we’ll get it for you. If you’re not sure, we’ll make suggestions, taking into consideration your event, your audience, and your budget.
