I came across this DVD by chance: I was looking for films about Brazil and the bossa nova. Choro is a style of music which precedes both samba and bossa nova. There are some excellent guitar, tambourine and acrylic (!) clarinet performances. Some great footage of Rio de Janeiro. It was inspiring to see the music performed not just by professional musicians but also by amateurs aged from 8 to 80 from all walks of life. Highly recommended for fans of Latin sounds who prefer the music more authentic and less commercialised.
Very enjoyable. Love this music.
A fairly closely followed account of a group of musicians attempting to revive the "choro" musical tradition in Brazil. OK if you're into that kind of thing.
Soft and gentle, loving and tender
