Choro Down Neck performs a variety of Brazilian popular styles, including choro, choro-samba, samba, bossa nova, and forro.  Never heard of choro?  Well, once you hear it, you'll never go back.  The Brazilian choro has something for everyone; poignant, delicious, 19th-century harmonies combined with Afrocentric, syncopated rhythms reminiscent of ragtime and early American jazz; exquisite, exciting, and often virtuosic melodies, and the interlocking rhythms of the classical guitar and pandeiro.  The members of Choro Down Neck represent the best performers in Latin music, flamenco, jazz, and Brazilian music, bringing the right ingredients for the perfect recipe of Brazilian sizzle.  With Rick Faulkner, trombone; Ivan Max, 6-string classical guitar; and Peter Abazia, pandeiro, cajon and other percussion.
