About Brazilian Choro

Brazilian Choro Ensemble

This popular Brazilian style, which emerged in the late 19th century, is often compared to early jazz.  Typical instruments include guitar, cavaquinho (Brazilian ukulele), mandolin, flute, and pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine). Classes run according to the traditional roda model, a structured jam session where performers read through, improvise upon, and hone their abilities to play familiar tunes.
