Choro das 3 is a family based band composed of three sisters: Corina (flutes), Lia (7-string acoustic guitar), Elisa (mandolin, clarinet, banjo, and piano) and their father Eduardo (pandeiro).
The band plays Brazilian instrumental music, and their main style is Choro, an instrumental genre that emerged in Brazil in the 19th century. Choro is considered the first characteristically Brazilian genre of urban popular music, and was an important influence on painter Tarsila do Amaral, a leading Latin American modernist artist. Tarsila, as she is known in Brazil, has been described as "the Brazilian painter who best achieved Brazilian aspirations for nationalistic expression in a modern style."
Choro das 3 has performed in concerts and workshops all over Brazil, USA, Mexico, and France.
