Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. Choro is one of Brazil’s earliest popular musics, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music. Grupo Falso Baiano’s exploration of choro spans nearly 100 years, including everything from the traditional to more contemporary versions and jazz influenced reinterpretations. As jazz musicians, they offer a lively program that traces the unique nuances of Brazilian choro and its shared roots with American Jazz, showing how each evolved to create a national musical identity.
