Event Details

 

Brazilian Music Foundation is proud to announce the


5TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL 

 

 

 

“A most unique and delightful Brazilian

Chamber Music Performance”

 

 

***SAMBA-CHORO***

 

This year we have a very interesting lineup of Samba-Choro with highly talented musical participants from all over the US. 

 

The Brazilian Music Foundation (BMF), in partnership with Asuos Productions and Bossa Magazine, will present the 5th Annual International Choro Festival highlighting the history of “SAMBA-CHORO” with a lineup of very talented musicians and a variety of interesting performances.

 

Those who appreciate the genuine sound of Brazilian instrumental music will have the opportunity to enjoy the 5th International Choro Festival in the City of New York on November 13th, 8pm at the Scorca Hall Theater, at Opera Center America. The Festival collaborators will incorporate different cultures and participate in artistic exchanges between Brazil and the US. The Festival also aspires to promote and preserve the “Choro” – a rich instrumental music tradition since the nineteenth century, known as the oldest musical style throughout Brazil. The goal is to bring together local musicians with fellow musicians from Brazil and other countries to present traditional Choro as well as new compositions.

 

The Choro Festival was created by Madalena Sousa, the founder and chief executive director of Brazilian Music Foundation. The festival first occurred in August 2015 and was a great success. Due to this positive reception, we will continue with its annual presentation. The Choro Festival will provide an opportunity for all to learn about one of the oldest Brazilian musical genres, the Choro and Brazilian Jazz.

  About Choro

 

Brazilian Choro is considered Brazil’s first “urban pop” music. There are over 30 different types of rhythms in Brazilian Music. By presenting the diversity of our rhythms, we hope to encourage diverse musicians, music students, adults, and children to engage in creating music with a dynamic communicative style that is energetic, fun, creative, and very inspiring! Samba-Choro is a musical subgenre that emerged in the 1930's from the fusion of rhythmic elements and the instrumental formation of samba with choro, both musical genres of Brazilian popular music.
