Movie Reviews

Robert J. Schmitt | california | 07/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great DVD. If you love Brazil, play guitar or just want to see great music and great musicians buy it. I noticed Ze Paulo Becker and Yamandu Costa because I am interested in guitar. worth seeing both. Just a really enjoyable film."
The Sound Of Rio
Robert Laven | New Zealand | 06/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An absolute must for any classical guitarist, mandolin player, ethnomusicologist or anyone in need of a musical revival. Yamandu is at an almost spiritual level of one-ness with his seven string guitar. I wonder though why Jacob Do Bandolim is not mentioned, where his compositions feature strongly."
Great Music Fantastic Images

"If you like latin music, you should get this!! I didn't know much about Choro but it's a very groovy sound. I love it! The film has beautiful images and shows a different side of Rio de Janeiro. And it all culminates in a concert at the end!!"
Great introduction to "choro"
D. Guillen-nakamura | Gold Coast, Australia | 12/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is a great introduction to the "choro" style of music. This is the ancestor of bossa, and also blends nicely with samba. Choro is the urban musical style of Rio. Features excellent artists such as Yamandu Costa, Trio Madeira Brazil, Paulo Moura, Guinga, Ze da Velha & Silverio Pontes, Joel Nascimento, Jorginho do Pandeiro, Marcos Suzano, and singers such as Teresa Cristina & Pedro Miranda, Elza Soares, Adamilde Fonseca, Zeze Gonzaga, and others. Playing music of excellent composers such as Ernesto Nazareth, Pixinguinha, Dilermando Rios, etc. Watch the trailer here:"
