Choro has been dubbed the ‘New Orleans Jazz of Brazil’ – it lies in the heart of Brazil’s musical culture. As the urban music of Brazil it is vibrant, highly virtuosic with European and African influences interwoven in a lively and fascinating musical genre. Tamandua is joined by Tamil Rogeon (The Raah Project) for a one-off collaboration at Kew Court House.
Having all studied music in Brazil, the members of Tamandua are experts in the field. They bring a fresh, contemporary approach with a line-up of flute, 7 string guitar, cavaquinho, drum kit and percussion, playing music from the complete gamut of choro; 19th century to world premieres. Fast, energetic and addictive, Tamandua play with a true Brazilian instinct. They just know how to swing it.
