GRUPO FALSO BAIANO

Grupo Falso Baiano is a choro group that offers a window into the history and diverse culture of Brazil. Choro is one of Brazil's earliest popular musics, dating back to the late 1800s, and, similar to jazz, it reflects the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music. G.F.B.'s exploration of choro spans nearly 100 years, including everything from the traditional to more contemporary versions and jazz influenced reinterpretations. As jazz musicians they showcase an assembly that shares the unique nuances of choro and Brazilian history with the shared roots and history to American Jazz and how they evolved to create national music cultures for both their countries.
