Frevo: Derived from the Portuguese world ferver (to boil), Frevo refers to the wide range of music and dance styles from the Recife area – dances for the Carnival. This is such a big deal in the city, that there’s actually a museum/cultural centre for it – the Paco do Frevo. The centre focuses on activities, progress, transmission and evolution of this slice of Brazilian culture. Most of the important exhibits are on video, though there is also literature. There are regular performances, so check out the attraction website to see if you can catch one. You can’t get to know really know Recife without visiting this museum, so get your camera and be ready to take a lot of pictures.
