Returning to Pausa after their sold-out January debut, Brazil 716 promises another memorable night of authentic Brazilian instrumental music.
In this show, Brazil 716 will take the audience through the choro/samba/jazz that influenced and was in turn influenced by bossa nova, including tunes by Garoto, Esmeraldino Salles, Zé Menezes, Antônio Carlos “Tom” Jobim, Baden Powell, and a few samba songs and original choro compositions. Brazil 716 is Stephen Guerra and Rochester-based trio Rosa Boêmia.
Rosa Boêmia Based in Rochester, NY, Rosa Boêmia (Ken Luk, bandolim; Bernardo Marcondes Rodrigues, guitar; Darien Lamen, pandeiro) specializes in performing Brazilian choro music. Originated in 19th century Rio de Janeiro, choro is a popular instrumental music genre that began around the same time as samba. Contrary to its meaning “cry” or “lament,” choro is mostly upbeat, joyous, and syncopated.
