    Choro Democrático is back at the Regattabar, performing choros, maxixes, sambas and other exciting Brazilian music styles. This dynamic Boston-based ensemble has performed sold-out shows at the Regattabar, Berklee Performance Center, Ryles Jazz club, and many area festivals and universities.
    Their repertoire ranges from standard choro compositions by Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim to more modern works by Hermeto Pascoal and the group's flautist, Fernando Brandão.

    About the music:
    Approximately 40 years before samba and 80 years before bossa nova, choro became the first authentically Brazilian musical style. Choro is an "urban folk" music that originated in the late 1800s in Rio de Janeiro through the melding of European dance forms like the polka and waltz with African rhythms. Choro has continued to develop over the past 100 years and today this dynamic music is recognized as a national treasure of Brazil and is increasingly popular in the United States and Europe.
