Rabeca Cinema​  ft. Renata rosa

and Seu Luiz Paixão


Ciné Rabeca is a fusion of the concert and a documentary about Renata Rosa and her rabeca master, Seu Luiz Paixão.


On stage, the two artists play forrós, cocos and cavalos-marinhos, during a dialogue with their own projected images, filmed between 1991 and 2010 in the Zona da Mata and in Olinda, in the state of Pernambuco, during the traditional festivals, rehearsals and their daily lives by popular artists.


In this performance, live music is performed under the ambient noise of streets, parties, and the tuning of rabecas in the film in the background, in an articulation between the individual memories of the musicians and the cultural memory.  


The Ciné Rabeca is the meeting between tradition and modernity through the mixture of various artistic languages.
