Irmãos Lora performing live on December 1
Portland Community College’s Experience Music Series will present Irmãos Lora, one of the most exciting and creative musical duos performing today, live from Brazil in a virtual concert on Tuesday, December 1 at 1:30 pm. To view the concert, visit expmusicseries.com/youtube. The concert link will remain live until December 8.
There is no charge to view the concert, but donations to the series are gratefully accepted.
Irmãos Lora (the Lora Brothers) is a duo from São Paulo, Brazil featuring composer, guitarist, and educator Douglas Lora and composer, percussionist, and educator Alexandre Lora. The duo has a long history of performing together with the choro ensembles Caraivana and the Grammy- nominated Trio Brasileiro (with mandolin virtuoso Dudu Maia).
This new project brings together the brothers’ experiences as jazz virtuosos, classically-trained musicians, their accomplished compositions, and their love of Brazilian music, all in a warm, entertaining, and charismatic presentation.
