THE TROPICAL DIASPORA EXPERIENCE
FIM DE FIERA

Emerged in 2004 in Pernambuco´s effervescent musical scene, Fim de Feira was born with the aim of reconciling tradition and modernity, contemplating, within a new aesthetic, the cultures of the rural environment and artistic reality of large urban centers. In 2008 the group released the award-winning “The Revolution of Pebas” debut album, produced by musician and producer Herbert Lucena. The CD is copyright and has the participation of teachers of the northeastern culture as Walmir Silva, Dedé Monteiro e João do Pife de Caruaru.
The album bets on a range of rhythms ranging from baião ao carimbó, through the coco, forró, maxixe e cantigas de viola and the constant presence of the poetry of the singers and repentistas of the Brazilian Northeast. In 2010, the first DVD came, called “Fazendo a Revolução” (Making the Revolution) with live performance of the band’s work, pictures backstage and interviews of musicians and producers who have followed the trajectory of the group.
