Amazonia Groove

Leaving Belem and crossing much of the Para State Amazon region, its towns and riverside villages, "Amazônia Groove" reveals artists and their traditions, faith and mysticism, music and life that pound in the northern region of Brazil, little known through the eyes of Brazilians themselves.
Such a force, the result of ancient cultures, of a particular spirituality - called "enchantment" - a rich miscegenation, gives off a unique sonority, an impressive musical energy unlike anyt
Through its artists, "Amazônia Groove" gives voice to a fundamental part of Planet Earth, extending Brazil and the world’s eyesto an almost unknown musical tradition that has so much to reveal to us.
