Boebis’ Pernambuco Mix

By | 25 February, 2015

The musical jewels of Pernambuco are uncovered by Boebis in his latest mix for us, a cornucopia of delights from one of Brazil’s most culturally rich states. Here’s his intro:

“‘Size doesn’t matter’, could well be the motto of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco. Indeed, with only 1% of Brazil’s area it is still one of the most culturally rich places in the country. Maybe it’s because Brazil’s colonization started there, mixing for the first time Indians, Europeans and Africans cultures and giving birth to embolada, samba de coco, repente, frevo, maracatu de baque virado, maracatu rural or ciranda. Maybe it’s because Pernambuco is located in the extreme east of Brazil, that kept it isolated from foreign influences. Or maybe it’s because its musicians had their ears open and mixed their music with the best Brazilian and gringo ones, inventing baião, udigrudi or manguebit. Or maybe Pernambucanos just love singing and dancing even more than elsewhere in Brazil. I couldn’t tell, but for sure I can listen and enjoy!”
