LEARN & PLAY
Come to Brazil and learn how to play Choro! Choro is best described in American terms as “the New Orleans jazz of Brazil.” It is a complex popular musical form based on improvisation, and like New Orleans jazz, blues, or ragtime, grew from a formalized musical structure and many worldly influences. It is upbeat and fun music that has become increasingly popular in the U.S in the last 20 years. Join us! All instruments welcome!
