100 years of choro

When it was announced in the 1920s that a black musician was going to represent Brazil in Europe, Brazilian newspapers ran articles by writers who were outraged by the idea of a "barbarian and primitive music" representing the country. The barbarian was composer and instrumentalist Pixinguinha and his band who were enthusiastically received in Paris. "Un flautiste d'une virtuosité épatante" (A flautist of tremendous virtuosity) wrote a French daily. From then on nobody would stop his glorious career which would produce more than 600 compositions.
