About the Choro Festival (Chorofest)
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, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Ernesto Nazareth, and new composers such as Wagner Tiso and Alberto Rosenblit.
The Choro Festival in NYC aims to preserve and share the Choro (Crying), considered one of the oldest gender and rich instrumental music from Brazil.This style of music has been presented since the nineteenth century in all regions of the country.
