The Festival's goal is to promote and preserve "Choro" the oldest Brazilian musical style, established in the nineteenth century as part of Brazil's rich instrumental music tradition. We aim to share the sounds of Choro and to present some of these Choro groups from around the world who perform traditional Choro and their own compositions.

About Choro

Brazilian Choro 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
