The Eclectic Music of Northeast Brasil

The music of Recife is some of the most forward-thinking music in all of Brasil.

NAÇÃO ZUMBI, Mestre Ambrosio & DJ Dolores are some of my favorites in this movement.
Music that combines the organic roots of the
sertão with the urban edge of the teeming Nordeste cities.
Accordions & violins with surdos, triangles and sampled hip-hop beats.
This music is honest,instead of sounding like some derivative mix.
It's about musicians who refuse to discard their roots as being passe.
