Choro is a form of Brazilian popular music that has evolved over the course of more than a century. Because its origins lie in the cultural heritage of the diverse social classes, races and ethnic groups that together make up the Brazilian population, it has come to represent more than just a style or genre. Like samba, carnaval and futebol, it is a symbol of Brazilian national identity, and a unifying cultural force.
