African and European Connections in Brazilian Choro, presented by Tom Rohde
In this lecture, Tom Rohde demonstrates how African dances, such as lundu, were combined with the European polca and schottische to create choro, a uniquely Brazilian rhythm. This mixing was controversial at the time because Brazilian high society discriminated against African cultural products.
Additional lectures in the series will take place on October 22, November 19 and December 3. For more information visit http://cpae.org/arts/event/brazilian-choro-lecture-series/.
