About this product
- Product InformationIn the late 19th century, Brazilian musicians started to blend European melodies, Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the melancholic interpretation of the indigenous Indians' music to create Choro: the first musical expression of Brazil's melting pot. Choro remained a major popular music style until the 1920s, leading directly into Samba and later to Bossa Nova. After a slight decline in popularity, Choro music has made a remarkable comeback over the past few decades.Three of Brazil's outstanding Choro musicians - the "Trio Madeira Brasil" - plan a concert. Brazil's leading players join their jam sessions and reminisce about key events in the history of this Brazilian urban music. A look into a Choro workshop with over 450 participants of all ages illustrates the off-hand genuine Brazilian way to play. Interviews with well-known Samba and Bossa Nova artists like Zeze Gonzaga, Elza Soares and Guinga illustrate the reciprocal inspiration with Samba and Bossa Nova music. A final show of the "Trio Madeira Brasil" with their guests in one of Rio's traditional music halls show once more the opulence of rhythms and melodies in Choro that has evolved over the past 130 years into a fascinating form of modern tropical sound.
