This is part of a series of pieces composed by this Brazilian composer between 1920 and 1929. Choro is Portuguese for weeping or tears, and came to be the name used for music played by an ensemble of Brazilian street musicians using both African and European instruments. Villa-Lobos described the basic concept of his Choros as a “brasilofonia”, an extension of the popular street-musicians' choro to a pan-Brazilian synthesis of native folklore.
