Event Description

The Chorogues are playing at the RareBirds Housing Co-op house on Friday March 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm for an intimate house concert. ?The Chorogues play choro music. Choro is a style of instrumental music that originated in Brazil in the latter part of the 19th century. It is a fusion of African rhythms and European dance music and was the foundation for Samba and Bossa Nova In choro music the rhythm section, called "the kitchen", provides the background for syncopated melodies and instrumental improvisation. Groups that perform choro are called regionals (“Regionais”) and the musicians, composers, or instrumentalists are called “chorões.” Despite the genre’s name — which literally means “cry” — it generally has an upbeat and cheerful rhythm, characterized by the virtuosity and improvisation of its performers. Choro represents the most quintessentially Brazilian instrumental formation, as well as the oldest musical grouping within Brazilian popular music. Tickets are available online on EventBrite for $20.00. See ticket link below.
