Recorded for Mika Kaurismäki’s documentary film, the music from Moro No Brasil offers an exciting, in-depth look into Brazil’s rich musical heritage. Moro no Brasil is a true celebration of music and culture. Brazil is rich in musical tradition, and this record is a testament to that. It has been said that music plays a major role in the minds of the Brazilian people. Music for them is often like a ritual, a way of survival, an expression of their creativity. Mika Kaurismäki and Milan Records hope to convey this musical passion with the Moro no Brasil documentary and soundtrack album.
