Choro Ensemble with Anat Cohen

Tuesday, August 13
Sets at 8:00 and 10:00PM

The Choro Ensemble does a pioneering job in the US showing the most sophisticated and beautiful Brazilian music ever. Although most peope are not familiar with the CHoro style, the public falls in love with this genre of music that combines the classical European elements, Afro-Brazilian rhythms, improvisation and constant counterpoints between melody and the 7 string guitar.

More than merely playing Choro music for the American public, the Choro Ensemble also presents its own innovations in terms of arrangements and original compositions.

In its 6 years of existence, the Choro Ensemble has some stories to tell.

Anat Cohen- Sax/Clarinet
Dioisio Santos- Cavaquinho and Acoustic Guitar
Carlos Almeida- 7 String Guitar
Zé Mauricio- Pandeiro

Innovation. Exploration. Competition. Revolution. The Evolution Jam Session.
The jam session is the lowest common denominator for any group of artists. One, maybe two words are exchanged. A melody line is plucked out on a piano. Musicians and artists of all kinds clamor to get on stage with their idols and peers. And now, in the style made prominent in the clubs of Harlem with the likes of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and Dizzy Gillespie, the culture will live on at Zinc Bar every Tuesday at 11:30PM. Come out and experience the mentorship, competition, collaboration, and best of all: the never before heard unique musical enterprises that come of improvisation and innovation. From the most famous musicians, singers, tap dancers to the emerging generation of artists, we invite you to come and experience one of the most essential tools in furthering this generation of music and artistry.
