Originally from Bahia and considered today one of the most globalized musical movements in the world, Axé is a musical rhythm that carries in its essence a good part of all the musical and cultural syncretism of Bahia. The documentary brings together interviews and archive images outlining the birth of Axé.

Good movie and good vibes with a lot of "axé"!
4 November 2018 | by binhosanSee all my reviews

This is a revival of what the "axé music" represents to Bahia and Brazil. An energic sound that makes all people crazy. This movie makes me feel that positive energy! Worth a watch!
