My Brazilian street music group The Chorões had it’s first gig late last month. We played as part of Chichester festival in one of the main venues in the city. Our set was an hour of choro and bossa novas, some fun arrangements of Brazilian guitar tunes, and even a couple of solo guitar Villa Lobos preludes.
I love the instinctive improvisation and energy of choro (the audience loved it too!) and we are all excited to be next performing at West Dean’s Chilli Fiesta on the 7th of August. All the recordings in this post are live from the concert.
