Paulo Sa Brazilian Choro Mandolin Workshop in San Diego
By Mandolin Cafe
December 28, 2005 - 2:45 pm
Brazilian mandolin master Paulo Sá will be teaching a Choro and Mandolin workshop at Acoustic Expressions, in San Diego, on Saturday January 28th from 10 AM to 12 PM. Cost will be $25 per person.
Paulo Sá, founding member of the Rio de Janeiro based modern Choro ensemble, Rio Trio, and former columnist to Mandolin Quarterly will be giving an in-depth, hands-on look at the infectious melodies, rhythms, and history of Choro music; a uniquely Brazilian instrumental music made popular in the late 19th century, and still played today.
Choro pre-dates both Samba and Bosa Nova. One of its biggest stars was the mandolinist Jacob do Bandolim, brought to life in the U.S. by David Grisman's compilation of this great master. Mike Marshall is also a great proponent and superb interpreter of Choro.
Paulo has both a masters and doctorate degree in Brazilian Popular Music from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Paulo will be in San Diego from January 25-31, 2006, and will also be available for private lessons.
