Choro Livre



Biography

Henrique Lima Santos Filho, known as "Reco do Bandolim", played in some of Brasília's earliest well-known rock bands in the 1980s.  However, when he was introduced to the bandolim he fell in love with "Choro" and he put aside his electric guitar once and for all. Reco do Bandolim, Henrique Neto, Rafael dos Anjos, Marcio Marinho and Valério Xavier form the group "Choro Livre", presenting a new, creative way to play Choro with influences from other genres.  True to its origins, but not concerned with dogmas, the group plays contemporary versions of the classics of Choro and fills out their repertoire with new pieces, some of which are their own compositions.Presented in cooperation with the Embassy of Brazil.
