Described as a travelogue, Moro No Brasil is Mika Karsmaki’s vision of Brazil’s music. He begins by researching the music of the Brazilian aboriginals, on this case the Fulni-O Indians.
Karsmai travels hundreds of kilometers throughout Brazil, encountering rural folk music, urban entertainers and even some Brazilian musical stars, like Seu Jorge.
Part documentary, part musical video, the video is a fascinating watch.
