- Info -

Carl Zinsius is a drummer and percussionist based in Cologne, Germany.

- Mondo Chôro -

Choro (“crying”) is the traditional music of Brazil, originated in Rio de Janeiro in the 19th century, that mixes African and European music and cultures.

With our own blend of Portuguese, Spanish and German culture and our individual experiences in the world of Classical, Jazz and Popular music, we are thrilled to reflect the flavors and rich influences of Brazilian life and share this experience with our audience.

The setting of a trio gives us the freedom and the intimacy to share all the nuances and emotions of Choro!
