PERFORMING BRASIL – BRAZILAN CHOROINHO //
Performing Brasil is a performance ensemble started in 2002 to celebrate all Brazilian things – music, culture, dance and language. Musical styles covered include samba, bossa nova, forró, samba-funk and frevo, but their real speciality is chorinho, the “Brazilian Blues”.
The group has recently given rise to the “Clube Nacional de Chorinho da Australia”, celebrating and developing this glorious, nostalgic, vibrant style in Sydney and has recorded and self-released their first CD of chorinho “Assanhados” in 2014.
