Chart positions

This upload was 3rd in the World Music chart and 5th in the Latin chart .

Pará is located in the very North of Brazil and has a unique musical identity. Its music is still overlooked in Brazil, and quite hard to find (at least in decent quality), even with the recent rise of tecnobrega. Due to its proximity to the Caribbean, its modern music is influenced by cumbia, merengue, and even reggae or zouk, which gives it this special flavour.

In the mix, there's carimbó and siria, the emblematic styles of the state, represented by legendary names such as Mestre Verequete and Mestre Cupijo. There are also modernizers like Pinduca or Mestre Vieira, inventors of lambada and guitarrada as well as other amazing lesser known bands, from the most roots to the grooviest. It ends with two young paraenses, Aíla and Felipe Cordeiro.

Uirapuru is the name of an Amazonian bird, as well as the band who accompanied Mestre Verequete.

I love this one! When I'm working in the restaurant, I play this mix for the people. And the people are enjoying it ;). 'Which Cd is that?, what artist is playing?' They ask :)...

Amazing work! I'm from Brazil and I must say that Pará is likely to be the most culturally independent state in this country. I really love to go there and see people enjoying the local genres, dances and cuisine, and they are very proud of it.
