      The Choro Music of Brazil

      Listen to the Program

      “Choro is classical music played with bare feet and callus on the hands”
      Aquiles Rique Reis, Brazilian singer.

      Long before samba music became a Brazilian icon, the musicians of Brazil were gathering around a table, drinking beer and  playing choro music.  Scholar and musician Julie Koidin introduces us to this urban music of the Fabvelas with recordings of Pixinguinha, Joaquim Callado, Carmen Miranda and Heitor Villa-Lobos.
