After years and years of wanting to see Moro no Brasil, I finally had the chance the other day and I liked it so much that I saw it twice in a row! It spends about 50 minutes on Pernambucan music, 10 minutes on music from Salvador and the rest (around 45 min) in Rio, on samba. When and if I ever get the time and money, I plan on documenting a similar journey throughout Brazil on a similarly interesting subject.
“Moro no Brasil (“I Live in Brazil”) is a musical journey that delves deeply into the heart of Brazil. Experience Brazilian culture and get to know its people with over 50 musical performances from the streets of Brazil, including interviews and performances by Walter Alfaiate & Seu Jorge, Antonio Nobrega, Darue Malungo, Silverio Pessoa, Margareth Menezes, Ivo Meirelles and more. Moro no Brasil is a stirring passionate documentary that grants the viewer unparalleled access to the diversity and musical richness of Brazilian music, reaching far beyond Samba and Bossa Nova. Writer/director Mika Kaurismaki’s musical journey covers 4,000 kilometers, with stopovers in Pernambuco, Bahia and Rio de Janeiro, and presents the voyage from the roots of samba to its present-day excursions into rap and funk.”
