      “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 with beer and nibbles 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.
