NORDIC CHORO – S/T AANIA-18

If choro music would have been born in the Nordic coun-tries in the late 19th century, it might be sounding like this at the beginning of the 21st. However – excepting the European ones – we didn´t have the same influences here in the North, so this is just a vision and nordic choro is an imaginary genre. Nonetheless, the group Nordic Choro is a real representative of the genre and there is no need to be too serious about different music styles. After all, music is for playing!

Nordic Choro was founded in the Autumn of 2008. The repertoir of the ensemble consists mainly of contemporary compositions by Jarmo Romppanen. He has been inspired by Brazilian choro music and musicians, and also influenced by nordic folk-fiddle styles.

Nordic Choro:

Fabio de Oliveira: 7-string guitar
Anders Perander: percussions, cavaquinho, banjo
Jarmo Romppanen: 10-string mandolin

Guest musicians on the album:

Petri Hakala (mandolin), Johanna Juhola (accordion), Kukka Lehto (fiddle), Mari Mäntylä (decacorde), Jari Perkiömäki (soprano saxophone), Ricardo Santos (percussions) and Milla Viljamaa (pump organ).
