Choro - the first urban popular music of Brazil - is based on samba and other Afro-Brazilian dance rhythms. It's at least 130 years old, but new and vital choro tunes are being written now, as you read this. Of how many musical styles can this be said?

Typically, choro is played in a circle, or roda, with guitars, other fretted stringed instruments, one or more lead instruments, and light percussion. The Brazilian style closest to European classical music, choro borrows the form of the Chopin waltz and the counterpoint of the high Baroque period, yet retains a personality that is all Brazilian.

Choro is known for its leaping, sparkling melodies, dizzying speed, harmonic variety, and evocative ornamentation. Within an exacting structure, it demands improvisation. This is extremely virtuosic music made to sound very natural and spontaneous. Ultimately, through words, choro is indescribable. You have to experience it live to understand how this irresistible genre charms, captivates, challenges, and invites listeners and players into an unforgettable relationship with music.

Choro das 3 is a Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father, who have been playing together as a band since 2003. Corina, 26, plays flute and piccolo. Lia, 24, plays violão de sete cordas (a 7-string guitar). Elisa, 21, plays bandolim (the Brazilian mandolin), tenor banjo, clarinet, and piano. Their father, Eduardo, accompanies them on pandeiro, a hand frame drum similar to our tambourine.

This group has received accolades all over Brazil and abroad for virtuosity and creative energy, and has played a significant role in the preservation, renovation, and modernization of choro. They are traveling through the Memphis area on their second US tour. If you saw them last year, you know why to get your tickets early.

If you didn't ... don't miss this. COME and FIND OUT!
