Airto Moreira Presents : Code : Brasil Target : Recife

About Album


The late Chico Science is not the only hero of the Recife beach boys but more importantly it’s him who is responsible for the interest in the sounds and rhythms of Pernambuco, a region so rich in music that all those no longer want to be stuck with Samba forever have travelled to the Northeast for new inspiration.

Airto, who thankfully invited us in 1997 to the recordings in Recife, once again shows with this new compilation his new direction. During a week in Recife Airto worked and recorded a number of traditional artists from the region including Maracatu Nação Erê, Mestre Salustiano, Tavares da Gaita, & Biu do Pifano or Banda de Pifanos de Caruaru.
