In the Songbook Choro you can find 97 of the best known and mostly played choros from Brazil. On my website www.mandoisland.de
I have compiled youtube videos of many of the 97 choros and also some information. I have recently started to check and update my youtube playlists with choros and will post more choro posts in my blog.
Murmurando is a choro by Otaviano Romeiro Monteiro who is better known as Fon-Fon.
Let’s start with a version sung by Odete Amaral from 1944:
An early version played by Jacob do Bandolim:

Playlist Songbook Choro No. 61 – Murmurando by Fon Fon
Jarmo Romppanen has just recorded a new CD with his band Nordic Choro. Instead of playing the Brazilian repertoir Nordic Choro have arranged nordic songs in the style of Brazilian choro – a great idea!
Nordic Choro have started a campagin to raise the money for the production of the CD. They have presented their project in several videos – I have compiled the new videos in my playlist below. My first impression of the recordings is very good – so I am very curious to get the finished CD.
