Presents
15 years of Choro das 3 USA Tour - Houston
"Brazilian Instrumental Music"
Studio 809 (2nd floor from Henke & Pillot)
809, Congress Ave
Houston - Texas


Join us for the best Brazilian Instrumental Music as they stop in Houston.
Choro das 3 is a Brazilian instrumental music band of three sisters and their father. Corina plays flute and piccolo, Lia plays acoustic 7 string guitar, Elisa plays mandolin, clarinet, banjo and piano and Eduardo plays pandeiro (the Brazilian tambourine).
The band plays Brazilian instrumental music, and their main style is Choro, an instrumental music genre that emerged in Brazil on the 19th century. The band has performed in concerts and workshops all over Brazil, USA, Mexico and France.
The music they play is called Choro which is a form of urban jazz native to Brazil that shares a similar feel with New Orleans jazz or ragtime or bluegrass. Choro das 3's mission is to revive the Choro tradition in Brazil, where they join several other young people in rediscovering this music, and to spread Choro around the world.

In Brazil Choro das 3 has played for presidents and for huge audiences such as São Paulo's New Year's Eve Party (2 million people). It has been on national TV many times, including the Jo Soares show (the Brazilian version of "The Tonight Show”).
For the last four years Choro das 3 has played in the USA to reviews with words like, “superbly talented,” “cohesive,” and “beguiling.”

Their appearances at Mike Marshall and David Grisman's Mandolin Symposium led Marshall to say that Choro das 3 plays ". . . some of the most inspired and inspiring music . . . the highest level of musicianship and presentation . . . the highest quality of Brazilian Choro music that can be heard any place today.

They've played over 100 concerts at halls, festivals, clubs and schools from Massachusetts to California and from Seattle to Texas.
Choro das 3 has released 8 CDs since 2008 including a solo CD of Elisa playing her original works on piano. Five others feature original works by the sisters and their musical friends rendered in traditional Brazilian acoustic styles.
