As you may know, Recife has an annual music festival called Rec-Beat. It’s all about sounds and sights, unexpected and experimental. Started in 1993 by journalist and cultural producer Antonio Gutierrez (Gutie), the RecBeat Project initially was made up of shows featuring new bands at nightclubs near the port area of Recife. Two years later, it became a festival, with its first event happening in Olinda, during Carnival, but by 1999 it had moved back to Recife. Lots of great bands have been started and reunited at the festival.
