The Gage Hall Coffeehouse
SATURDAY, November 15, 2014
Porto Seguro plays Brazilian choro and bossa nova. Fun, laid back, rhythmic and soulful, the music is the perfect complement to a great cup of coffee! Make sure to share this session with your friends 'cause it will make your feet dance, your body groove and your smile shine. Porto Seguro, led by Rio native, Tom Noren - guitar (plus members Susan Conant, flutes; John Holenko, mandolin and Jonathan Gray, bass); has been having about the most fun musicians can have mastering these great tunes and making them their own
Brazilian choro music developed in the early 20th century. With parallels to American ragtime, the instrumental genre melds European melody with Afro-Brazilian rhythm and requires virtuosic playing and quick improvisation. Bossa nova (meaning new trend) which developed mid-century, combines samba, jazz and blues to produce a distinctively Brazilian sound. Some people say that while American jazz swings from front to back, bossa nova sways from side to side.
