Description

Portland's 7th 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, such as Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Tom Jobim, Baden Powell, and many more. 4 acts in one show!

Come hear the intricate and sultry instrumental melodies of classic choro, the edgy syncopation of modern choro, emotive vocal samba and bossa nova, and other genres. This event is proudly held in honor of Pixinguinha's birthday (Brazil's godfather of choro), which is National Choro Day in Brazil - Dia Nacional do Choro!
