Brazilian Nights Present Choro Das 3 W/ Choroloco! says
Brazilian Nights PNW is thrilled to present a night of “CHORO” music: Brazilian Urban Folk Music.

Don’t miss this rare chance to hear the fabulous ensemble CHORO DAS 3 w/ ChoroLoco at the Lower level of the Town Hall Seattle (Eighth and Seneca)!

About the featured ensemble:
Choro Das 3(is a Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters; Lia, Elisa and Corina Meyer-Ferreira and their Father: Eduardo Roque da Silva Ferreira

Corina plays flute and piccolo, trading lead and counterpoint roles. Elisa plays the Brazilian mandolin (bandolim), banjo, and clarinet, piano and is a composer. Lia plays the 7-string guitar. Eduardo supplies the band's rhythmic heartbeat with the Brazilian tambourine (pandeiro)

Choro das 3 preserves and extends a tradition over 100 years old - one that continues to attract composers, virtuoso musicians, and incredulous, delighted audiences. This is their 3rd US tour!

Opening act:
Choroloco – Seattle’s own choro band, Rosalynn De Roos – clarinet, Stuart Zobel – 7 string guitar, Naoyuki Swada – cavaquinho (ukulele) & Brandi Ledferd – percussion. They just returned from the Berkeley Choro Festival in May, and have released a new CD. They have been performing since 2009, and have a loyal, admiring and affectionate following.


What is “Choro” music?
Choro is a vintage style of acoustic music born on the streets of Rio de Janeiro turn of last century. Like ragtime with a tropical twist! It’s a virtuosic style that demands a high level of musicianship among its players with breakneck tempos- and also allows for creative improvisation. It has an irresistible Afro-Brazilian syncopated rhythm. The genre emerged in the late 1800's, a confluence of rural Indian and African plantation dance forms with the sophisticated waltzes, polkas, mazurkas, and classical music traditions of European immigrants.
