This wonderful documentary lets you enter the universe of brazilian original music, from indian traditional music in the northwest to Rio based Samba rhythms and fawela's funk blend. In pictures taken by a hand-held video camera it shows a documentary journey of Mika Kaurismäki to the different regions of Brazil. Throughout all his film, Mika manages to present the special people involved in the brazilian musical traditions. He shows the strength they had to have to go their way and the pride they feel for their musical and social accomplishment. This film shows, what music is able to give. A real "human" film.
