Paraiba, Meu Amor by Robert-Charrue, Bernard

Northeast Brazil moves to the beat of "forró", a music that is an integral part of the life and culture of the region. Paraíba, Meu Amor explores the history, presents interviews and covers live sessions to understand how this music came to represent the spirit of the Northeast and the soul of the Sertão. In such a dry and arid land, the "forró" has greatly influenced the people and their culture.
