One of the first doccies ever on the music of the Nordeste, with a focus on forro.
Recife belongs to the region of East north in Brazil. The Folk Music here is a merge religious traditions and festivals. We want this film to distinguish between different practices music: the "Frevo", the "Maracatu" or "Baiao" ... The most popular of these rhythms is the "Forro" represented by Luis Gonzaga, one of his most famous performers.
