Alvorada Trio

Alvorada Trio

Alvorada are the UK’s leading performers of choro, a rich and uplifting style of instrumental music from Rio de Janeiro. Alvorada explore influences from all over Brazil, playing choros with the irresistible swing of samba and maxixe from the South to baião from the Northeast, with an immediacy and vibrancy that delights audiences everywhere. Their debut album First Light contains choro classics and original works, revisiting the genre with influences from the UK.

After playing together for years in London’s rodas de choro (the traditional, informal gathering of choro musicians), Alvorada formed a band in 2016 to bring the sound of choro to the wider UK stage. Alvorada unites top musicians from London and Brazil, whose diverse backgrounds - including jazz, classical and Brazilian music - lend the group a unique edge. Alvorada won the Latin UK (LUKAS) award for “Best Act”, and “Best Band’ in the Focus Brasil awards. They have performed extensively in London and the UK.
