Choro Manha led by Dr. Richard Miller explores the richly expressive sounds of the nylon string guitar (both 7 string and 6 string) with a repertoire that includes Brazilian styles (choro, samba, bossa nova, forró, etc.), American jazz, Latin American styles (samba, bolero, tangos, etc.), and Classical guitar.
Choro is a genre that emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the late 19th/early 20th century. Like ragtime, it features intricate melodies and counterpoint, a swinging rhythm, and rich harmony. This interactive event is both performance and discussion with Q&A and lots of energetic music that will make you laugh...and at times, cry. VIDEO clip at http://www.jasonennis.com/chorodamanha/
