Film information

Story: Documentary about Choro, the first genuinely Brazilian urban music. It was back in the late 19th century in Rio de Janeiro when Brazilian musicians started to blend European melodies, Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the melancholic interpretation of the Brazilian Indian music to create Choro. 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. It remained a major popular music style until the 1920s, leading directly into Samba and later to Bossa Nova. After a slight decline in popularity, Choro music has made a remarkable comeback over the past few decades. The film remembers the history and gives a colourful picture of Choro's vitality today.

Directed by: Mika Kaurismäki
