La Linea presents…

Alvorada + Marco Ruviaro 

The Music of Pixinguinha

Award-winning Brazilian quintet Alvorada will be joined by Brazilian mandolin virtuoso Marco Ruviaro for a unique show at SOAS as part of La Linea festival. They will be performing the music of Pixinguinha (1897-1973), one of the most important composers of choro, a lively and uplifting style of instrumental music from Rio de Janeiro. Choro emerged in the late 1800s when European salon dances (polkas, waltzes, mazurkas) reached Brazil and were infused with Afro-Brazilian rhythms.
