The Brazilian Embassy and the Kennedy Center are proud to present the Choro Festival, celebrating this truly Brazilian music genre of more than one century of existance. Four Brazilian groups will perform on September 9 at 6pm on the Millennium Stage, Kennedy Center. No tickets required!

Choro, popularly called chorinho, is a Brazilian popular and instrumental music genre that has more than 130 years of existence. Its historical backgound is the city of Rio de Janeiro, with the arrival of the portuguese Royal Family in Brazil, in 1808. Brazilian musicians were more exposed to European musical styles, in a musical environment that was already strongly influenced by African rhythms.

Here is more info on the Choro Festival at the Kennedy Center
