Thanks for the links and clarification on the (non) relationship of
Choro and Forró - I was in a difficult e-mail conversation a few years
ago with a young forró musician who had recently moved to the USA and
I got that part wrong!
I think Choro is interesting, not only in the parallel (but
different) relationship to the way ragtime and jazz developed, but
because it is improvised, popular dance music that was played by
amateur and semi-professional musicians and was later
"professionalized" by more skilled musicians. I am still reading and
learning more about this music - I had happened to find a Pixinguinha
collection CD when my band was touring in Brazil and I have been
intrigued by the music ever since.
