Last year was the official centennial of the frevo with a lot of celebration events, including oncerts and the carnaval of Recife, Pernambuco, of course. The SpokFrevo Orquestra was a part of it all and had great success with its performance. One of the concerts was recorded live and has now been released on both cd and dvd. Learn more about the contents by clicking the picture below.
The SpokFrevo Orquestra's official website (- also in English) has more information about the band, including a calender announcing the band's tour schedule.
I am proud to learn that the band will play the official opening concert at Copenhagen Jazz Festival on July 4th, without doubt a great take-off of the festival that celebrates its 30th season this year.
To give you an impression of the SpokFrevo Orchestra in action, I insert an uploaded video-fragment from the concert recorded at the mentioned dvd.
