Two cool November events in Recife! (Since the first event was on the same day I posted it, I’m adding a third event, also happening soon).
Late notice but a French band called Água na Boca will play tonight (the 14th) at 20h at the Aliança Francesa. They use the berimbau and sing in Portuguese, too. There will also be a talk (on African cultural heritage) given and a chat session. Best of all, it’s free!

V Janela Internacional de Cinema do Recife
Looks like it has already started but it goes until the 18th of Nov. The idea seems to be about showcasing the development of independent cinema. Here’s their site.
