This is the Vimeo channel for Clube do Choro UK, a London-based initiative to promote the Brazilian musican genre known as choro in the United Kingdom. To this end we hold monthly events at the Cecil Sharp House near Camden Highstreet on the last Saturday of most months. Special guest musicians are often in attendance, sometimes direct from Brazil!
On this channel you will find roundup videos covering each of our regular events, along with eventually longer, full concert style coverage, lectures, promos and other miscellanea.
For more information on what we do, please check out our website at clubedochoro.co.uk, our Facebook page at facebook.com/clubedochorouk, our twitter, twitter.com/clubedochorouk, or send us an email at info@clubedochorouk.

Choro is a traditional and lively form of instrumental music, blending many traditions including western music and jazz. The performers sit around in a circle, a 'roda', where they can maintain eye contact and facilitate improvisation. Anyone is welcome to bring an instrument and participate regardless of instrument played or skill level! Scores are available on our website!
In addition to the evening's focus on choro, we end each evening with a blazing roda de samba, dancing is strongly encouraged!!!
We hope to see you around!
We are what we share!!!
