This Brazilian big band sensation draws inspiration from frevo, the vibrant music of the Carnival of the northeast Brazilian state of Pernambuco. Frevo, a fiery-tempo instrumental music, is played with brass and percussion instruments. SpokFrevo Orquestra takes inspiration from the century-old roots of frevo, but the big band also thrives on the improvisational freedom of jazz.
Led by saxophonist, arranger, and music director Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque—better known as Maestro Spok—the band radiates happiness.
