The Israeli Choro Ensemble

Brazilian Choro with Israeli touch

CHOROLE combines leading Israeli musicians with Brazilian artists who met due to their mutual passion for Brazilian music. The group developed their own unique sound, a mixture of typical Brazilian Choro style with Jazz influences, eastern flavor and Israeli music. The group plays it’s own interpretation to the classics of the Choro style, original compositions and Brazilian interpretations of famous Israeli songs. CHOROLE plays special instruments, identified with this style of music: Pandeiro (small drum), Cavaquinho (little guitar) and Sete (7 string guitar). CHOROLE has been performing since 2008 in clubs and festivals all over Israel. In 2010, made a one month tour in Brazil which was a big success, leading to a second tour on 2011 and a third one in 2012.

The Choro style preceded the Samba and the Bossa Nova and is considered to be the meeting point between classic melodies and Afro Brazilian rhythms. In the last couple of years, this style of music has become so popular that it can be heard all over Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo’s streets and clubs, and now – in Israel.

Responding to the Israeli enthusiasm towards Brazilian music, CHOROLE made it it’s target to spread Choro style music all over Israel.

CHOROLE is led and managed by the flautist Salit Lahav.
