As you might know, Pernambuco is full of artistic talent (though, historically I’m not sure why) and it’s what makes Recife one of Brazil’s true cultural capitals, along with Rio, São Paulo and Salvador. The state government together with Fundarpe created a cool little web portal for discovering musicians from Pernambuco. It’s simply called Música de Pernambuco. Check it out!
(Once I get audio working on my computer again, I’ll definitely have to explore this site and find some more favorite bands.)
