Description

Outside of Brazil, frevo is one of the least-known genres of music. It is also, quite possibly, the most infectious. Direct from Brazil, the 16-piece SpokFrevo Orquestra will make its Houston debut performing traditional frevos with new arrangements that incorporate jazz solos and improvisation.

Led by conductor, music arranger, and saxophonist Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque, a.k.a. Maestro Spok, this high-energy big band brings together the sounds of saxophones, trumpets, trombones, basses, guitars, and percussion for an evening of world music at its best. “Frevo is a unique rhythm, different from all others; cheerful and with a special magic – the one to transmit happiness,” says Spok.
