Spok Frevo Orquestra featuring Genaro

 Spok Frevo Orquestra draws inspiration from frevo, a vibrant music of elaborated arrangements and deep roots. SpokFrevo takes the tradition to the centre stage, but does not renounce allegiance to freedom. It relies on what jazz is all about: improvisation. SpokFrevo Orquestra arose in 2003 from musical experiences that date back to the late nineties, leaded by the virtuous Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque, Maestro Spok, who plays the part of saxophonist, arranger and musical director. Spok fronts a 16 musicians group, a real big band with saxophone, trumpet, trombone and rhythm sections, bass and guitar. These musicians engage in a crusade beyond aesthetic disputes.
