Latin Roots #45 - Aaron Levinson Highlights Little Known Style Choro

Latin Roots: Aaron Levinson Highlights Little Known Style Choro

Choro is yet another style of Brazilian music that is hybrid of European and African Influences. It started in the 19th century as the Portuguese flooded into Rio. Aaron Levinson is here to play a couple of examples for us. One from the mid-40’s has a kind of “Hot Club of France” jazz feel. The more modern example is actually from Israel where bands are keeping the form alive.
