n his movie “The Sound of Rio – Brasileirinho” Mika Kaurismäki has made a great portrait of the Brazilian choro. I had not seen this movie until now, but I have recently found this movie (with the Portuguese title “Brasileirinho – Grandes Encontros do Choro”) on youtube. If you are interested in Brazilian choro and have not seen this movie you should take the chance to watch it now.
An interview (in German) about the movie: Interview mit Mika Kaurismäki auf www.bluerhythm.de.
The soundtrack of the movie is available as CD. You can buy the DVD and CD on amazon (partnerlink):
