[CHORO CHAMPIONS] Emerging from Rio cafes at the beginning of the 20th century and recently resurgent, choro is Brazil’s equivalent of North American jazz: a sweet, street-born stew of improvisation, African rhythms and European classical (in this case, Portuguese) melodies that influenced other pop music. These three local acoustic Brazilian acts—Rio Con Brio’s guitar and mandolin duo, Choro da Alegria’s mandolin-guitar-cavaquinho-percussion trio and Brazilian-born solo guitarist Sergio Botelho—showcase different dimensions of choro, samba and other Brazilian music and some of its most prominent composers, including Villa Lobos, Pixinguinha and more.
