A Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father, Choro das 3 began to play as a band in 2002. Flutist Corina, now 28, doubles on piccolo, trading lead and counterpoint roles with multi-instrumentalist Elisa, 23, on bandolim (Brazilian mandolin) and clarinet; Elisa also writes and performs at the piano. Lia, 25, anchors the harmony and provides the bass lines so essential to choro with the violão de sete cordas (7-string guitar). Their father, Eduardo, supplies the band's rhythmic heartbeat with the pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine).
Choro das 3 has performed in Memphis three times, to awed and delighted audiences. If you were lucky enough to be there, you know how lucky we are to have them back!
"...the highest quality of Brazilian choro music that can be heard any place today.”
