Forró Estrelas do Norte is a Rochester-based band that plays up-tempo, down-home country music from Northeast Brazil. Featuring tight harmonies, fancy fiddling, and irresistible dance rhythms. / Based in Rochester, New York, Rosa Boemia (Ken Luk, bandolim, Bernardo Marcondes Rodrigues, guitar, Darien Lamen, pandeiro) specializes in performing Brazilian choro music. Originated in 19th century Rio de Janeiro, choro is a popular instrumental music genre that began around the same time as samba. Contrary to its meaning “cry” or “lament,” Choro is mostly upbeat, joyous, and syncopated.
