Nashville Jazz Workshop presents Choro das 3
Saturday, November 18 at 7pm, the Nashville Jazz Workshop will host Brazilian instrumental group Choro das 3 (Choro das três) as a stop on the group's 2017 tour of the U.S.
Choro das 3 is a Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father that first started to play as a band in 2002. Corina plays flute and piccolo. Lia plays 7-string guitar. Elisa plays mandolin, banjo, clarinet and piano. Their father, Eduardo, plays pandeiro (the Brazilian tambourine).
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.
The group met with an enthusiastic reception last year in their first appearance at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Choro (pronounced "Shoro"), a musical form that predates samba and bossa nova. Choro is fusion of European melody and harmony with Afro-Brazilian rhythms. Choro has many parallels to jazz, including virtuoso technique, rhythmic intensity, and group interaction. Like great jazz, Choro is full of joy and is deeply grooving.
The group has recorded five CD's and has played for millions of people, including Brazil's Presidents, Governors and Ministers; several TV and Radio Shows; soccer stadiums; plus concerts and workshops in France and in the United States. For an example of the group's virtuosity, see the attached video.
