Heitor Villa-Lobos (March 5, 1887 – November 17, 1959) was a Brazilian composer, conductor, cellist, and classical guitarist described as "the single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music". Villa-Lobos has become the best-known South American composer of all time.

Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Suite populaire brésilienne for guitar was born out of the composer’s youthful experience playing in a “chôro” ensemble, a typical form of popular urban musical expression found in Brazil at the beginning of the 20th century. The first piece of Mazurka-Chôro is selected as one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) grade 7 repertoire.
