Choro das 3: International Brazilian Roots Trio image

Choro das 3 is a family-based trio formed by the sisters: Corina (flute), Lia (7 string guitar) and Elisa (mandolin, clarinet, banjo, accordion and piano).

They have released 11 albums and have been touring in North America, Europe and Brazil for the past 21 years.

The trio plays Brazilian instrumental music based on choro, an instrumental music genre that emerged in Brazil in the 19th century to become the foundation for all Brazilian music. All other Brazilian music has roots in Choro, from Samba to Bossa Nova, including regional forms like Forró and Baião, and more modern forms like Brazilian jazz and pop.
“The group ‘Choro das 3’ is a truly extraordinary example of traditional Choro performance practice, and the performers are all virtuosos on their instruments...Their recordings and expertise have established them worldwide as important advocates for this musical style.” - Marilyn Mair, Professor of Music at Roger Williams University

"...some of the most inspired and inspiring music ...the highest level of musicianship and presentation...the highest quality of Brazilian Choro music that can be heard any place today." - Mike Marshall, world renowned mandolinist
