This playful 1929 choro is subtitled “choro ligeiro” (light, facile). Its melody has an etude-like character owing more to polca than the more syncopated Afro-Brazilian influences of maxixe, lundu, batuque.

This arrangement is not based on any particular recording or historical version, which allows the opportunity to incorporate new counterpoints and textures which are appropriate to the period.
