A unique opportunity to listent to Grupo Falso Baiano, a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil! Choro is one of Brazil’s earliest popular music, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque classical music. The group’s exploration of choro spans nearly 100 years, including everything from the traditional to more contemporary versions and jazz- influenced reinterpretations. In addition to performing and touring, Grupo Falso Baiano has worked in collaboration with the Pasadena Pops, Around the World Music Program, Young Audiences of Northern CA, and Youth in Arts to bring Brazilian music to students throughout California.
