Gig At The Greenhouses
Mambista at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses
+ DJ Gerry Lyseight
A Mambista Summer at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses wouldn’t be complete without an evening spent in the company of Alvorada and their repertoire of choro tunes and rhythms from Rio.
Based in London, Alvorada are the UK’s leading performers of choro, a rich and uplifting style of instrumental music from Rio de Janeiro. Alvorada explore influences from all over Brazil, playing choros with the irresistible swing of samba and maxixe from the South to baiгo from the Northeast, all with a swing and vibrancy that nourishes the soul.
Alvorada’s debut album First Light contains choro classics and original works, revisiting the genre with influences from the UK.
