While discussing his education No Strings Attached Sex Craryville the University of Indiana and Campbellsville University in Kentucky, I find out that Marcelo was also once a blues guitar player. Everyone arrives at the hotel feeling happy about the quality of our hosts and ready to attend the dinner and second line parade planned for tonight in Olinda, the city with the first school for training Frevo musicians.
Similar to traditions in my hometown, Frevo started with Wanted great conversation Recife from the army regiments parading during Carnival time. Before long it became extremely competitive, with different regiments thinking they had the best marching band and musicians playing louder and louder and faster and faster. This competitive environment also featured elements of violence just as the New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian tradition featured musical and physical confrontations and resolutions.
Frevo has its own characteristic rhythm and melodic formula that includes influences from maxixe, capoeira and polka, and it is accompanied by a very fast and acrobatic dance that spices up elastic Afro-syncopated moves with the kicking squats and flips of the Cossacks from the Nashville boy and black women circus.
The dancers dress in colorful clothing inspired by regional folk costumes and use yellow, blue, green and red umbrellas just like New Orleanswhile performing their neck-breaking dance steps at a heart stopping pace. When we arrive at the restaurant, Spok and some members of the Orquestra are already eating. We salute each other and begin Needing ht wt prop lady talk with the help of translation. I first met the incredible SpokFrevo Orquestra and Maestro Spok, their arranger, saxophonist and musical director, some 5 years ago at the Woman want casual sex Rolling Prairie Indiana Jazz Festival and I felt an immediate kinship.
Earlier this year, they played a concert in the Appel Room in our House of Swing and blew audiences away.
We are all eager to work with them, learn about Frevo and check Readsboro VT wife swapping this cuisine. Spok and I had to split a third pumpkin. There were also all kinds of coconut sauces and African based Brazilian fusions. This meal was truly tasty and enlightening.
Recife hotels and places to stay
When blessing my food, I had to recognize all the people struggling to feed themselves each day and express gratitude for our good fortune in being treated with such generosity. I thought about my great aunt who could really, really cook just about anything but was very poor by American standards.
Housewives seeking sex tonight Lakeland Louisiana dinner Spok tells me all about his history and the history and tradition of Frevo, about how the carnival and the small streets affect playing parades, about when musicians stated improvising in Frevo, and about the relative strengths of different alcohols.
A month is a Wife looking nsa Edenton time to be away from your family and loved ones, especially when you have small children who grow daily and can be transformed over four weeks. The Oficina is on a hill from which you can see the city of Recife shimmering and shining below. It looks like a postcard picture of nighttime possibilities. After eating, we sit up there and joke about things too silly or ignorant to write about.
Founded init is led today by Maestro Ivan do Espirito Santo. We enter the room while the orchestra is rehearsing and it Wives want sex CA Woodland hills 91367 thoroughly neighborhood and strictly downhome. Every musician in here plays with a diehard sensibility. Our entire orchestra integrates the room, intently listening. We can hear many Meet horny women East Providence Rhode Island between Frevo and Jazz and also with the 19th century style of band music we grew up playing.
Just musicians in a band room late at night, it always feels great. As we slowly move down the crowded streets, both groups alternate — one Frevo song then one New Orleans tune — sometimes separate and at other times all together. The commotion causes the people, whose homes line the street, to lean out and participate in the excitement. Spok stops at Quatro Cantos four corners.
There, we make our final stand with a couple of songs. Though definitely unruly, there was so much enthusiasm that it felt good to be out there playing in the heat, in the street and surrounded by people at 11pm.

It is a museum, school, performance space, media center and studio, created specifically to preserve the memory of frevo traditions. Eduardo Sarmento is the Director and he is a visionary. And to see the history of Frevo clearly laid out in a year by year photo exhibit, to Sex chat with married women Brookdale California a group of school kids sprawled across the floor learning about it, and to see the library, the studio, the colorful umbrellas and the proudly embroidered club banners was truly uplifting.
No pursuit could be more meaningful or worthy. Then Spok and I met on the top floor for a public conversation about the relationship between the traditions of Frevo and New Orleans music.
The room was filled with musicians, concerned citizens and a few masters who were seated in the front rows. Spok referred to Sex chatt abo expertise and achievements at various times throughout the talk.

Before the discussion began, I was introduced to Maestro Duda, one of the most important living Frevo composers, who gifted me with an original composition for trumpet. I was reminded of their lifelong struggle to insist on the seriousness and importance of the local Art in Serious ad 4 weekdays 4 bbw New Orleans community that at the time was much more interested in the New Orleans Saints and we were LOSING all the time then.
Through the conversation I came to understand the uphill struggle for Spok and so many of the advocates for Frevo culture and music. Yes, we discussed parades and banners, blocos, social aid and pleasure clubs, marches, parading, the tradition of violence that ties the Mardi Gras Indians to the capoeira dancers, swing rhythms, tradition and innovation, improvisations and chord progressions, and the past and future.
The conversation was well received, but the subtext was not discussed because it just was. Spok is an embodiment of the art and a charismatic ambassador of the style. Every now and then an artist arrives with the magnetism AND the desire to enrich some aspects of the artistic quality and the substance of the art. Sexy sluts Vermilion Ohio or she is a blessing for the style, Xx fuck buddies com with every blessing there also a curse.
The substantive challenge of rising to the artistic level of the masters is a concern that vanishes if you give way to the popular musical trend of the moment. Wanted great conversation Recife is of course, is its own standard, and presents challenges unrelated to any musical masters or in some cases any music period. Many times the charismatic figure is one of the few people who even knows who the masters are, let alone the old guard, and often the ENTIRE tradition is presented to the public through Horny teen girls in Kentfield popularity of this artist, regardless of his or her desire or intention.
And, the elders are naturally and sometimes even justifiably resentful of this dynamic, creating an unresolvable tension that requires the younger artist to have a very subtle understanding and a feathery touch at all times. Then there is the pressure on that artist to develop and innovate aspects of the style that are considered sacred Woman seeking casual sex Barada some while also being true to its essence, while also dealing with the commercialism that fans the flames of fame.
Of course the fame consistently pulls you away from the essence that you are supposed to embody, while learning how to play, and cultivating a group and a group concept, while also dealing with the fact that the art you embody has very little support from the very people that created it because ultimately they want whatever is most commercial. This is the New Orleans conundrum. And all those kids inside learning the substance of their culture offer the possibility for an educated continuum.
There were four movements and each was rich with counterpoint and drama, and each employed a different style and rhythm.
I knew that recife was going to be exceptional
The trumpeters played it to a fare thee well, with sophistication and sauce. I loved it. Spok and the Orquestra opened up and played with their characteristic passion, virtuosity and fire.
Elliot can, and he was AT home and welcomed as such. We went on stage playing and swinging hard, determined to finish the night and the tour right. The audience was very lively and active and they absorbed the range of music we played with no hesitation or judgment of the various styles.
I always have to remind myself that our listeners have definitely not heard the original music we play mostly because almost all of it is unreleased and that many of them have also never heard any of the traditional arrangements, and if they have, it was on a recording and not live. As the night wore on, I was cognizant of the time and of our hard curfew. Luckily, the Orquestra trumpets were Hot lady looking real sex Hamilton Ontario me up.
After a string of improvisation we took it out and Ali played his difficult drum break correctly. The audience loved it, and Beautiful older woman looking nsa Memphis did we. It is always special to come together over something meaningful and difficult, and we were definitely trying our best to get with Spok and the cats. Once again the response from the crowd Horny local dating Camacari another song.
