Recbeat, more than music

On saturday 26/7 at Cinema Cabaña at the Sfinks Festival in Belgium you can see the video:

'Recbeat, more than music'

52 minutes
John Erbuer 2008

A mixture of the performing bands on the Recbeat festival with impressionistic short shortfilms on Recife during it's crazy carnival make you discover the social engagement of the Manguebeat-movement.

Recbeat is the very special music festival during Carnaval in Recife, Brazil.
It started 13 years ago as the Polo Mangue, the stage with all the bands of the Manguebeat.
Meanwhile Recbeat also brings music from other parts of Brazil, South America and even Africa, as long as it fits in their concept.
The festival still breaths the spirit of the early days with Chico Science, a combination of social engagement with renewing music with respect for the musical and cultural tradition.

To help you out with the Portuguese on the site:
"SÀBADO, DOMINGO, SEGUNDA, TERçA" are the 4 days of the festival.
So, just click on each word ...

One of these day's I'll post some video-teasers of 'Recbeat, more than music'.
