Description

Portland's 6th Annual "Dia do Choro" - A celebration of Brazilian culture through music. Choro music is roots jazz from Brazil, and considered Brazil's first "urban pop" music. In this unique show you will experience a wide range of pieces by many of Brazil's important 20th century composers, including Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Paulinho da Viola, Orlando Silveira, and many more. 5 acts in one show! Come hear the intricate and sultry melodies of classic Choro, the edgy syncopation of modern Choro, and a sprinkling of other genres.
