Choroloco - Vintage Brazilian Jazz circa 1920's!
Seattle based acoustic ensemble of clarinet, 7 string guitar, cavaquinho and 2 percussionists. This group has traversed the wondrous world of Brazilian music since 2008. Choroloco's sound is inspired by the streets of Rio de Janeiro, the hot deserts of Brazil's Northeast, the salted air of Ipanema Beach and the Douglas-firs of Western Washington. Choroloco can be seen and heard throughout the Northwest in a variety of venues such as: Tempero do Brasil, The Rialto Theater in Tacoma, Chapel at the Good Shepherd Center, Seattle Center, Couth Buzzard Books, Hales Palladium, Vermillion Art Gallery, La Familia Art Collective and the Greenwood Art Walk. Choroloco has also performed at a variety of festivals such as: NW Folklife, JamFest, First Night in Tacoma, Ethnic Festivals in Olympia and Lacey, Arts-in-Nature Festival at Camp Long, Belltown Founders Day Festival and the Moisture Festival. Choroloco has also been heard on Sonarchy Radio, KEXP, KBCS's "Raízes" and KUOW's “In the Studio” with Dave Beck. Our sound can compliment any occasion from private parties & weddings to intimate house concerts and festivals.
