Ott & Hunter’s intimate cabaret room is the perfect setting to experience Choroloco–-a Seattle based acoustic trio specializing in ‘choro’, a highly melodic and rhythmic instrumental form of Brazilian popular music.
Choro has roots in early 1900s Rio de Janeiro and is currently having a resurgence inside and outside of Brazil. Mixing the melodic forms of European music with Afro-Brazilian rhythms, it’s syncopated and energetic. On traditional Brazilian instruments (7-string guitar, bandolim, cavaquinho, and pandeiro) and the vibraphone they play choros old and new, from the classics of the choro repertoire to modern compositions and originals.
