Celebrating Choro, the vibrant beating heart of Brazilian music, Choro Choro Choro explores music from the 1880's to the present day by composers such as Ernesto Nazareth, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Pixinguinha, and modern masters such as Guinga and Hermeto Pascoal, as well as newly commissioned pieces by Huw Warren. By turns virtuoso, lyrical, and naively sentimental - Choro Choro Choro will bring new twists on this great dance music and is guaranteed to leave you smiling! Huw Warren has created several previous projects around the music of Brazil, including collaborations with Jovino Santos Neto, a critically acclaimed recording of Hermeto's music (Hermeto+) in 2009, A trio record for CAM Jazz Everything in Between in 2019 and Core Coracao from 2017 with Maria Pia de Vito, Gabriele Mirabassi, Roberto Taufic, and the legendary Chico Buarque.

'Choro Choro Choro' features an international line up including Anglo/Spanish flautist Tori Freestone, Russian bassist Yuri Goloubev and Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale.
"Music for the head, heart and feet!"
