Band Forró do Candeeiro –  Cordel Viajante’s teaser


With text by Bahian poet and writer Marco Haurélio and directed by João Paulo Lorenzon, “Cordel Viajante” tells the story of Juarez (Rosa Piscioneri), a character who travels through the northeastern hinterland to rediscover his beloved, Maria, after trying life in the city great. And it is in search of love and his roots that he crosses this musical journey full of landscapes and sensations.

Juarez is the personification of the northeastern people and its strength expressed over generations of migrations throughout Brazil, punished by the longing for living far from their homeland. The memories and feelings drive the character’s journey full of dreams and poetry through the sertanejo symbols.

The realization, by the Forró do Candeeiro group, aims to exalt and pay homage to the richness of popular northeastern culture in its various languages. Mixing forró, baião, xaxado, gallop and rastapé to the cordel metrics, this musical repertoire brings together classics of forró and juninas songs that will lead the audience to hum, dance and vibrate with works by Gonzagão, Dominguinhos, Sivuca, Trio Nordestino, Gil, Zé Dantas, Antônio Barros, Assissão, Humberto Teixeira.
