Abstract:The choro revival had several results. Its immediate effect was to fill a void in the expressive culture of sectors of the middle class, serving as a basis for reestablishing their Brazilian identity in a politically and socially turbulent period. As a musical movement, it reinvigorated choro as a musical style by attracting and educating new dedicated players who continue to explore its musical potential. Post-revival choro practice in Rio de Janeiro is characterized by a distinct shift away from participatory modes to mostly presentational and recorded modes of choro. It is suggested that certain social, economic and political conditions, including professionalization and the demands of the national and transnational market economy, have facilitated this shift.
