Learning Center- Brazilian Rhythms Frevo

Posted by:

Frevo encompasses a wide range of musical styles originating in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, all of which are traditionally associated with Brazilian Carnival. The word frevo is said to come from frever, a misspeaking of the Portuguese word ferver (to boil). It is said that the sound of the frevo will make listeners and dancers feel as if they are boiling on the ground. The word frevo is used for both the frevo music and the frevo dance. Ask us about our Brazilian Music History courses!
