Performing a unique mix of Brazilian music from different regions and eras, Trio DC Choro specializes in choro or chorinho, a predominantly instrumental style that began in Rio de Janeiro more than a century ago and features intricate melodies and counterpoint, swinging rhythms, and rich harmonies. In addition, the band brings keen musicianship and great energy to Brazilian popular styles like samba, bossa nova, and forro, a style from the Brazilian northeast featuring rhythmic call-and-response vocal lines over a rousing dance rhythm.
