Choro Louco

Nicole Rabata, flute
Carl Dimow, guitar, flute
David Newsam, 7 and 8 string guitar, mandolin
Joel Eckhaus, cavaquinho, mandolin
Eric LaPerna, pandeiro

Brazilian Choro has been around for over a hundred years, but in this country itʼs virtually unknown. David Grisman, Mike Marshall and a handful of others have helped introduce the music and the musicians to a larger audience, but itʼs still largely under the radar of most music listeners…Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements of European folk and classical, ragtime, jazz, Latin, and African music creating a style that is uniquely Brazilian.
