ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Choro is the traditional Brazilian instrumental music from the beginning of the 20th century.Choro Bastardo combines the traditional Choro style with each of the band members' different musical and cultural backgrounds to create a sonority that is different from the original, yet loyal to the playful spirit of that music. Using Baroque, early Jazz, and Contemporary Classical music as springboard, Choro Bastardo explores the different streams of music that can somehow share elements with the Choro tradition, recreating the atmosphere of cabarets and vaudeville in Rio de Janeiro. Mixing Jelly Roll Morton and Pixinguinha, Darius Milhaud and Ernesto Nazareth, John Cage and Jacob do Bandolim, Choro Bastardo represents a groundbreaking transformation in the realm of Contemporary Improvisation associated with neo-folklorist practices. Henrique Eisenmann- piano; Ben Andrews - violin, mandolin; Ilya Portnov- harmonica, Jew's harp; Cristian Budu - pandeiro, piano (track 6).
