Live from Hochstein – Rosa Boemia plays Brazilian Choro

03 Nov, 2021 12:10 PM — 03 Nov, 2021 12:50 PM    50 North Plymouth Avenue Rochester New York United States
Event summary
Rosa Boemia plays the fast-paced, joyous, and virtuosic style of Brazilian music known as choro.
Event details

The trio Rosa Boemia presents a program of Brazilian choro music that features works by composers such as Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, and Waldyr Azevedo, among others. Translated as “Bohemian Rose,” Rosa Boemia features Ken Luk on bandolim (a Brazilian mandolin), Bernardo Marcondes Rodrigues on guitar, and Darien Lamen on pandeiro (a Brazilian hand drum).

Choro (pronounced SHOH-roh) is an instrumental Brazilian popular music genre – the precursor to samba and bossa nova – that originated in Rio de Janeiro in the late 19th century. The music blends African rhythms and European harmonies and form, with opportunities for improvisation. Many choro tunes are fast-paced, joyous, and virtuosic.

Rosa Boemia was formed in 2019 and has performed at Alfred University, Little Theatre Cafe, Bop Shop Records, Rochester Fringe Festival, and Eastman’s summer concert series.

The Hochstein School’s free noontime Live from Hochstein concert series will be hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami and broadcast live on WXXI Classical. Listen to the concert at WXXI-FM 91.5, WXXY 90.3, or online at https://www.classical915.org/.
