Amazônia Groove is framed by a trip up the Amazon River into remote parts of northeastern Brazil. Trees and water glide by along with stories and songs, and director Bruno Murtinho introduces a group of accomplished musicians, each of whom tells a tale of land, water, and life. From traditional bolero music to modern "technobrega," artists perform and discuss the power of music in Brazil and around the world. 85 minutes. Portuguese with English subtitles.

“A delicious film, one you can dive into. Literally enchanting.” – Fernando Meirelles, Director of City of God
