Savannah Music Festival LIVE 752 – Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso

Throughout the Americas during the 19th century, the rich harmonic and melodic forms from Europe melded with the complex and intoxicating rhythms from Africa. In Brazil, the most important musical style to emerge was called choro, which dates back to the 1870s when European dance forms combined with the local African rhythms of Rio de Janeiro. This episodes features a 2015 SMF performance by the masterful choro quartet, Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso.
