The Berkeley Choro Ensemble is a group of world-class musicians from the SF Bay Area that formed in 2010. The group celebrates the music, culture and history of Brazil, with a special emphasis on the Choro genre (pronounced “shoro”), a style of music which emerged in the 1800’s in Brazil, fusing the music of Brazil’s European immigrants and the native music of Brazil’s indigenous and African-Brazilian population. In particular, the choro sound is somewhat akin to a combination of European classical music, ragtime, and blues. Our repertoire also includes samba, bossa nova, jazz, and the music of Northeast Brazil."
