The first thing that caught my attention was how you are playing the chords. It sounds very loose. You are playing them as a eight- followed by a sixteenth note and, in my opinion and on the editions I saw, it should be two sixteenth notes. It is a choro-maxixe and this would be the typical rhythm motive for the accompaniment.
The first edition I saw had it the way Dimitri plays it and is also the way I prefer it. Maybe it's not style correct, although I just got out the book Brazilian rhythms for solo guitar
which states the rhythmic motive as 16 8 16 8 8, with an accent on the last eight.
Just do what you like.
About the interpretation: of course, every one can do what he/she sees as the best option. I just wanted to give him some feedback. I have a LOT of experience with Brazilian music and wanted to help. that's all.
One last thing: the book you mentioned is not good. it doesn't go deep in anything and have some weird things. Instead of relying on books, I think you would benefit more by listening to great players. I would recommend Rogério Caetano, Marco Pereira, Dino 7 Cordas, Dilermando Reis, Raphael Rabello, Mauricio Carrilho. Groups like the one from Jacob do Bandolim, Camerata Carioca, Conjunto Época de Ouro are also important. Those are just a few names, of course. Different people will have another suggestions.
Again, this is just my opinion. You and everyone else should proceed as you see fit.
