She's from a small Midwestern town. He comes from Southern Brazil. But Leala Cyr, a vocalist and trumpeter, and Ricardo Vogt, a guitarist, have been collaborating since they met at the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay. The married couple has not only been tapped to support fellow cross-cultural adventurers Milton Nascimento and Esperanza Spalding; they've also been developing their own takes on improvising traditions from their native countries.

Cyr and Vogt returned with a band to a school they attended, Berklee College of Music, for this installment of The Checkout: Live At Berklee series. In a live radio broadcast on WBGO and live online video webcast at NPR Music, Ricardo Vogt and Leala Cyr performed live at Berklee's Cafe 939 on Thursday, Feb. 9.
