BLOCOS, TROÇAS e FOLIÕES by ANDRÉ RIO
This new Album intends to reveal the singular universe of the Plural Blocks on the Pernambuco Carnival, they are the major sign of spontaneous manifestation on four days of rollick. In all corners, streets or hills where a block passes, carrying in its “cordão” the true feeling of who is Frevo's unconditional lover.
In the Passants pass, in the Metals sound, in the pulsating rhythm of percussions, it’s our culture, our true Carnival.
Many thanks to the music Gods for blessing and giving me the voice that sings the pulsating heart and Frevo ambassador.
Long live alive FREVO
