Choro is an old style of Brazilian Jazz music that was born on the streets of Rio De Janiero in the 19th Century, which later gave birth to the more popular samba.

Wellington group Clube do Choro have brought this style of traditional Brazilian music to a New Zealand audience. They will give a musical performance as well as a social and personal history of choro.

With the Clube do Choro members playing and performing, it will be an entertaining and informative afternoon full of Brazilian sounds, ryhthm and music. You’ll learn about the father of samba and the grandfather of bossa nova, discover how Choro evolved and developed structurally and harmonically, and find out about the social context behind the music.

This performance is part of the Wellington Jazz Festival.
