Latin Roots: Choro With Aaron Levinson
Choro is a style of Brazilian music that's a hybrid of European and African influences. It started in the 19th century as the Portuguese flooded into Rio.
Grammy award-winning producer Aaron Levinson rejoins World Cafe for Wednesday's installment of the Latin Roots series, where he'll play examples of choro. One selection from the mid-1940s has a kind of Hot Club of France jazz feel, while a more modern example stems from Israel, where bands are keeping the form alive.
Listen to Aaron Levinson's essential choro playlist on Spotify.
Latin Roots on World Cafe is made possible by a grant from The Wyncote Foundation.
