Leaving Belem and crossing much of the Para State Amazon region, its towns and riverside villages, AMAZÔNIA GROOVE reveals artists and their traditions, faith and mysticism, music and life that pound in the northern region of Brazil, little known through the eyes of Brazilians themselves.

The extraordinary life experiences of the leading characters, their artistic originality, and the precious oral tradition of the Amazonian musicians, together with the intangible force that emerges from the region, are in every frame of the film.

Such a force, the result of ancient cultures, of a particular spirituality - called "enchantment" - a rich miscegenation, gives off a unique sonority, an impressive musical energy unlike anything most of us have ever experienced on the screen.

An energy born out of the waters, the heritages of indigenous people and Maroons, the songs of the Masters, the forest’s mythology and the rivers that overflow ancestralities and chimeras.

Through its artists, AMAZÔNIA GROOVE gives voice to a fundamental part of Planet Earth, extending Brazil and the world’s look and awareness to an almost unknown musical tradition that has so much to reveal to us.
