Mestre Ambrósio at the Heineken Concerts 1997.
Formed in Recife (Pernambuco) in 1992, the Mestre Ambrósio developed a particular sound that draws on the northeast Brazilian genres of maracatu, ciranda, coco, baião, and caboclinho, mixed with pop, rock, and world pop music, including Arabic. Associated with the mangue beat, Mestre Ambrósio, unlike the Nação Zumbi or Chico Science, is more devoted to the northeast Brazilian tradition. Its name derives from the role of master of ceremonies of the folkloric theater Cavalo Marinho from Pernambuco.
