Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Thinking about "Choro", considered as Brazilian Jazz, one actually imagines Rio de Janeiro and its wonderful environment. Campina Grande, in the Northeastern State of Paraíba, is known as the "Capital of Forró" (another Brazilian kind of music). Nonetheless, this documentary goes beyond any common sense, showing the universe of "Choro" in Campina Grande, through its founder, José Ribeiro da Silva (Mestre Duduta). The 76 years old Master is a fine composer, musician and luthier (musicians like Paulinho da Viola, Dominguinhos and the late Marinês, own instruments hand made by Duduta). But this documentary is not just a mere biography of Master Duduta, in fact, our glance embraces the small but still excellent universe of "Choro" in Campina Grande, actually a Duduta's creation.
