◾PAULO RÓ & TINA // Coco, Cirando, Frevo
The diversity of Brazilian music is very great. Each region of the country, each state of each region, each city of each state, has varied cultural manifestations, so when it is said that the music of Brazil is samba and / or Bossa Nova, this is reducing a whole cultural diversity to A single item, important without any shadow of doubt, but not the only one. The northeast region, from where we came (Paulo Ró and Tina), for example, is rich in traditional cultural manifestations, many dances, rhythms, lots of literature.
Some of these rhythms are present in all states of the region, and some of them are present in this show, Baião, Xote, Ciranda, Cambinda, Lapinha, Samba de Roda, Coco de Roda and many others.
In the repertoire, besides the traditional songs, are the compositions of my authorship based on this wonderful universe of popular culture. Our main intention is to promote this musical universe of our region, the Northeast.
