It was December 2009 when Thomas L’Etienne was again with the band to gave a workshop, that he brought us this wonderful Brasilian choro song.

Choro (“cry” or “lament”), traditionally called chorinho (“little cry” or “little lament”), is a Brazilian popular music instrumental style. It’s origins are in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. i1
