Synopsis

Documentary about Choro, also known as Brazilian jazz. The first genuinely Brazilian urban music, Choro is credited as being the first musical expression of Brazil's melting pot and had a prominent place in the development of Brazil's cultural identity. In late 19th century Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian musicians started to blend European melodies, Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the melancholic interpretation of the Brazilian Indians' music to create Choro. Choro remained a major popular music style until the 1920s, leading directly into Samba and later to Bossa Nova.
