Brazilian Music in St. Louis

Moacyr Marchini is one busy musician playing Brazilian music in both Chicago and St. Louis.

My neighbor Craig Myers introduced me to Choro music (lament) this week, and I became an instant fan at Côco Louco Brasil’s one year anniversary. I’ve eaten the exquisite cuisine of executive Chef Jorge Carvalho as he brings the flavor of Brazil to St. Louis’ Central West End.

The Musicians from Choro Guys are Derek Pardue: Accoustic guitar, cavaquinho, percussion. Craig Myers: Mandolin, violin. Mo Marchini: Cavaquinho & percussion.

We raised our glasses filled with a shot of Leblon Cachaca, a rum-like spirit from Brazil made from distilled sugarcane and aged in French Cognac casks. Oh, my!

Come enjoy Brazilian music, food, drinks at Coco Louco Brasil (512 North Euclid, Central West End). You can dance or listen. Choro Guys, will play mostly choros, chorinhos and some sambas. No cover charge.

Moacyr’s other St. Louis band is Samba Bon . Sign up on their website to receive updates about their special brand of live Brazilian music.
