A History of Choro with Rogerio Souza of Duo Violao, Edinho Gerber and Ami Molinelli

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 2:00 AM


According to Molinelli, “The intention for this album overall was to ensure that each song reflects a different musical style within the genre of choro and to showcase reinterpretations of more recognized tunes as well as lesser known compositions.”
The album’s 12 tracks present choro’s history in three blocks: the first representing the foundational block of the late 19th century through the first decade of the 20th century; the second representing the intermediate range of the music from 1910 through 1940; and the third representing the modern range from the 1940s through to the present day. Selections by composers such as Henrique Alves de Mesquita, Joaquim Callado (by all accounts the verified creator of both the choro style and name), Pixinguinha, Heitor Villa-Lobos, and Jacob do Bandolim, are here performed alongside original compositions by Souza and Molinelli.
