with Elsa Johanna Mohr
The singer Elsa Johanna Mohr and the guitarist Flávio Nunes dedicate themselves to the colorful diversity of Brazilian music with well-known Brazilian classics such as "Carinhoso" or "Tempo de Amor" as well as with their own compositions, thus creating a broad overview of a culturally rich and beautiful country. Now they present their joint album "Passadinha", which was released in January 2023 in the 96th episode of "Jazz thing Next Generation" on the Double Moon/Bertus label.
ChoroDorf is a collective of musicians from Düsseldorf and the surrounding region that aims to present the Brazilian Choro to lovers of good music, to make it accessible and to spread it throughout Germany. Every month, we organize a Roda de Choro in Düsseldorf and also organize workshops for musicians interested in learning how to play or expanding their repertoire.
We would love for you to come out and join us, as a fellow musician or guest!

Rythm & melody
This interactive workshop sets out to allow participants to develop a deeper understanding of the different rhythms in Brazilian music.
Participants are encouraged to experience the Brazilian "groove" by playing their own instrument, but are also invited to play light rhythmic motifs on other instruments (especially percussion instruments) to better understand the interplay between melody - and rhythm instruments.
For all instruments, advanced learners and beginners.
Trio Jandaia mainly plays Brazilian music, but they spice up their repertoire with jazz, soul, reggae and even a pinch of pop. Andrea Canta is a songwriter and singer, who lived for many years in Brazil and Cuba. The pianist Bruno Venturim and the guitarist Flávio Nunes are talented, creative instrumentalists, who recently moved from Brazil to Germany. They studied music in São Paulo and have participated in numerous projects and ensembles.
