Feeling a bit camera shy


Choro de Ouro is the premier Choro group on the Central Coast of California.  Choro is a pre-bossa nova style of music from Brazil that stated in the later part of the nineteenth century in Rio de Janeiro. It quickly spread throughout Brazil and eventually become a unifying point of pride for the country.  Composers like Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim were famous and honored for their contribution to Brazilian culture.  Today people are rediscovering this music as it has continued to evolve and grow with a wonderful history and life.  It is a passionate music full of virtuosity and excitement as well as expression and the quality of something quaintly beautiful.

When Grant Chase started the Choro de Ouro (which means Weeping Gold or Tears of Gold in Portuguese) he had no idea how far it would go or the life and energy that the project would take on.  Being introduced to this music was a life-changing event for Grant and he quickly became very devoted to music and started gathering musicians to play this music together.  For years the project lived under the title Chorinho, which is what one might call a musician who plays choro.
