We loved every minute of these beautiful concerts. What amazing performances - and what an inventive, rich tapestry of sound they create.
We're looking forward to next year.
A Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father, Choro das 3 began to play as a band in 2002. Corina, a master flutist, doubles on piccolo, trading lead and counterpoint roles with multi-instrumentalist Elisa on bandolim (Brazilian mandolin), tenor banjo, clarinet, and melodica! Elisa also writes and performs at the piano. Lia perfectly 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).
This is pure choro - classic and modern, ebullient and full of longing.
This is the real thing, a direct line to the past and future of the music.
