Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Cyro Baptista arrived in the U.S. in 1980 with a scholarship to the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio. During the '70- and '80's, the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio was considered the premier study center for contemporary creative music andis credited as the birthplace of world jazz - the improvisational and compositional expansion of the world’s musical traditions. Founded in 1971 by Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ornette Coleman, CMS brought together leading innovators in the jazz and world music communities. 

After his time at CMS, Cyro moved to New York City where he started his career on the streets of lower Manhattan.His vast talentand penchant for innovation brought him to be praised as one of the most respected musicians the world. 

Cyro’s endless sonic curiosity and intense rhythmic drivehas brought him to lead several ensembles and record many albums of his own. He has also lent his sounds to many GRAMMY award-winning records and over 300 albums with many of the most beloved musicians in the world.

 As a solo artist, Cyro has produced ten CDs of his own compositions and ensembles, traveling around the planet spreading his unique brand of innovation, irreverence, exuberance and energy to the most diverse audiences.

 Cyro’s credits read like a "Who’s Who" of modern music. His talent, credibility and versatily have led to associations with a wide range of CYRO leading jazz, rock, pop, classical, avant-garde and Brazilian artists.  From Paul Simon to Yo-Yo-Ma, Herbie Hancock to Kathleen Battle, Trey Anastasio (from Phish) to John Zorn, Wynton Marsalis to Laurie Anderson, from the legendary Brazilians Milton Nascimento and Caetano Veloso to Sting –  they all wanted Cyro’s magic touch on their recordings or live performances.
