Brazilian choro music is the “roots music” of Brazil, and the mother of the samba and bossa nova we love. Choro has inspired artists of all backgrounds, from Heitor Villa-Lobos to Darius Milhaud to Stan Getz to Walt Disney. It has been well-described as “classical music played with bare feet and callused hands.”
About the group
A Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father, Choro das 3 began to play as a band in 2002. Master flutist Corina doubles on piccolo, and trades melodic and counterpoint roles with multi-instrumentalist Elisa on bandolim (Brazilian mandolin), banjo, and clarinet; Elisa also writes and performs at the piano. Lia anchors the harmony and provides the bass lines so essential to choro with the violão de sete cordas (7-string guitar). Their father, Eduardo, supplies the band’s rhythmic heartbeat with the pandeiro (Brazilian frame drum). In Brazil, the sisters are a sensation, with regular appearances on national television and radio, major festival dates, and command performances before government officials. While still in their twenties, they display a level of skill and maturity in their live and recorded work that is truly hard to believe.
