Choro da Alegria is a Portland-based ensemble dedicated to playing wonderful melodies from Brazil. Choro da Alegria draws much inspiration from the genre "Choro," which means cry or lament and which has loosely been called Brazilian ragtime. The music was created in the late 19th century in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and despite its meaning, commonly has very fast, happy-sounding melodies. The group will also perform some classic melodies from the Bossa Nova repertoire.
