The Clube do Choro Club will hold this November and December 2017 the project BRASIL DE TODOS OS CHOROS - ORIGENS, SOTAQUES, ENCONTROS E CAMINHOS (Brasil of all choros – origins, accent, encounters and ways), an unprecedented mapping of the different styles of Choro (or chorinho) in each region of the country, with their stories, influences and peculiarities.
Representative artists of the genre will give lectures, workshops and shows about the characteristics of Choro in their home states, in an organic and systematized approach of a content that until today has been object of only empirical knowledge.
The artists are: the guitarist Sebastião Tapajós (Pará), the maestro and saxophonist Spock (Pernambuco), the bandolinist Armandinho Macedo (Bahia), the guitarist Maurício Carrilho, with special participation of the clarinetist Paulo Sergio Santos (Rio de Janeiro), the pianist Wagner Tiso (Minas Gerais), the bandolinist Danilo Brito (São Paulo) and Professor Luiz Machado, from Rio Grande do Sul. The project will also have the special participation of the guitarist Henrique Neto and the Dudu Maia, from the Federal District.
The purpose of Clube do Choro is to democratize for students and the general public the musical knowledge of Brazil, through the workshops; to bring the reality of Choro in each of the invited states through the lectures; and present the Choro accents of each of the regions, through the spectacles. In addition to raising the story of Choro throughout the country, the project will also be a reaffirmation of the strength and creativity of this seminal genre of Brazilian Popular Music - MPB that is going on for almost 150 years.
