Choro is a Brazilian music style which developed in Rio de Janeiro already around 1870. Its roots were influenced by several European dances like the Polka or the Waltz, the rhythmical background arose from African beats. Choro has grown to be a cultural and musical heritage of Brazil and is experiencing a huge rennaissance. Percussion instruments as well as harmony instruments (cavaquinho, 6- and 7-string guitar, bandolim, clarinet, accordion, transverse flute etc.) are played in Choro music which is known to be the most important ancestor of Samba. Whilst Choro used to be widely unknown in Europe, it is becoming more and more popular. Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim are two of the most renowned Choro composers.
