FESTIVAL PURPOSE:

The Festival aims to promote and preserve the “Choro” – the oldest Brazilian musical style and part of Brazil’s rich instrumental music tradition since the nineteenth century in all regions of the country. The festival brings together local and Brazilian musicians presenting traditional Choro and new compositions. Our goal is to bring together local musicians with fellow musicians from Brazil in presenting traditional Choro and authorial songs.

The festival will be part of the Latin Week. Since 2006, Pamar presents the annual Latin American Culture Week with the aim of bringing to the general public the richness and diversity of the various Latin American cultures. This series of events, independently produced by the participants, presents established and emerging artists in disciplines such as music, dance, visual arts, literature, theater, and film. Working with both area and international artists, PAMAR has fostered the development of cultural events, which include “Latin American Cultural Week” (LACW), Shall We Tango (SWT) NYC, a citywide international tango festival and “Celebracion de la Cultura Hispana in Washington Heights” and its educational program ” A Musical Journey Through Latin America.”
