Choro is a Brazilian music style, very popular in the 1920s and 1930s, but still popular nowadays. This blog wants to share our passion for this music and its musicians like Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim and Garoto, but also the contemporary generation of young talented musicans like Yamandú Costa.

Meu Brasil Brasileiro - Preview Of New CD
About a year ago I introduced the three charming young ladies shown above at this blog. The trio consists of three sisters from Porto Feliz, São Paulo state, Lia (violão de 7 cordas), Corina (flute) and Elisa (bandolim), who devote their skills to choro and do performances as Choro das Tres. In performance the three sisters are accompanied by their father, Eduardo Ferreira on the pandeiro and Adriano Andrade on cavaquinho.
Choro das 3 has made concerts and appearances in TV-shows with Luizinho 7 cordas, Conjunto Época de Ouro, Milton Móri, Zé Barbeiro, Ed Gagliardi, Arnaldinho do cavaco a.o., and now the trio has just released their first CD in Brazil.
The cd is released by Som Livre and is already available for purchase in Brazil, while the American and remaining market has to be patient until medio March. Click on cd-cover to see tracklist - the repertoire of the cd contains well known choro standards. I have ordered a copy already and will make a review later, when I have had the opportunity to listen to the cd. Until then, learn more about Choro das 3 from their website(-in Portuguese) and enjoy a review of one of their first uploaded videos, inserted below.
