Marshall, Mike & Choro Famoso, Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso
Choro is a vibrant, virtuosic style that emerged in late 19th century Brazil from a mixture of Europian popular dance forms and Afro-Brazilian rhythms. During a visit to Brazil, mandolinist Mike Marshall was badly bitten by the choro"bug" and upon his return to the U.S. formed the group Choro Famoso featuring a lineup of some of the Bay Area’s finest Brazilian and jazz instrumentalists. Choro Famoso will delight you with their spirited musical interplay and ability to weave their own influences into and around this charming and elegant style.
