WASHINGTON JEWISH MUSIC FESTIVAL
Sunday, May 197:00 PM City Winery DC
Tio Chorinho is dedicated to performing Brazilian choro music in the tradition of the great Jewish mandolin master Jacob do Bandolim. A virtuosic instrumentalist and prolific composer, Jacob do Bandolim was a major figure in the development of what many consider to be “The New Orleans Jazz of Brazil.”
This uniquely Brazilian form of high-energy improvisational music blends European, African, and South American traditions, and in Jacob do Bandolim’s case, bears a strong inflection of his Jewish musical upbringing learning Yiddish folk songs from his Polish-Jewish grandmother.
