About Choro

Brazilian Choro has roots jazz, and is considered Brazil's first "urban pop" music. There are over 30 different types of rhythms in Brazilian Music. By presenting the diversity of our rhythms, we hope to encourage diverse musicians, music students, adults, and children to engage in creating music with a dynamic communicative style that is energetic, fun, creative, and very inspiring!

Samba-Choro is a musical subgenre that emerged in the 1930s resulting from the fusion of rhythmic elements and the instrumental formation of samba with choro, both musical genres of Brazilian popular music

"Choro is considered a Brazilian cultural heritage".
