Brazilian Beats with Choro Louco!

Saturday, Nov 6 at 7:00 PM

Choro Louco performs the enormously appealing Brazilian music genre known as choro. The band was formed in 2013 by a group of accomplished musicians who have all established themselves as virtuosos in other genres—ranging from classical music and jazz to Celtic, klezmer, and Middle Eastern music. The band was performing regularly pre-pandemic and is very excited to be returning to the Mayo Street stage. 

Choro originated in Brazil in the early 20th century. Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements from many styles of music—European folk and classical; ragtime; jazz; Latin; and African music—creating a mix that is uniquely Brazilian and enchanting. Choro is experiencing a resurgence of popularity, both in Brazil and with bands throughout the world.
