Choro music is “almost like chamber music – with a groove!” noted flautist and Berkeley Choro founder Jane Lenoir once remarked. Berkeley Choro celebrates the music, culture and history of Brazil, with a special emphasis on the Choro genre, a style of music which emerged in the 1800’s in Brazil, fusing the music of Brazil’s European immigrants and the native music of Brazil’s indigenous and African-Brazilian population. In particular, the choro sound is somewhat akin to a combination of European classical music, ragtime, and blues. You can check out a little bit here.
