[BRAZILIAN] It's easy to hear why the family from São Paulo that constitutes Choro Das 3 have played for millions of Brazilians at major public events. The three sisters and their father play a variety of instruments (flute, piccolo, 7-string guitar, mandolin, banjo, clarinet, piano, pandeiro tambourine) with such engaging élan that their revival of choro—the century-old Brazilian melange of African rhythms, European harmonies, and South American styles that's the Brazilian analog of North American jazz—never sounds musty or academic. They make a good match for Portland's Brazillionaires, whose jazzy style incorporates choro as well as samba, bossa nova and more.
