During the last days I have looked for some interesting choro music, and I have discovered a project titled Beatles’n’Choro. 4 CDs with Beatlessongs played by Brazilian Choro musicians with clarinet, flute, cavaquinho, bandolim, violao and pandeiro.
On the bandolim we can hear Hamilton de Holanda who plays a nice arrangement of Something on the bandolim:
Beatles’n’Choro – Something – Hamílton de Holanda
A Brazilian project of The Beatles music in Choro, a traditional brazilian music.
You can find several videos with titles from this project, but there are also other videos of Beatlessongs played by choro ensembles. Here is a group who has three videos of Beatlessongs at youtube:
I Wanna Hold Your Hand – Chorinho

Finaly I have found some interesting videos at myspace – here as an example the song Eleonor Rigby played with bandolim, violao and pandeiro:

I have collected some other videos of Beatlessongs in choro style in my playlist:
