Candeal, a marginal area in the heart of Salvador, the capital of Bahia in Brazil, is also the home of Grammy Award-winning percussionist Carlinhos Brown, whose commitment to local youth inspires the musical transformation of a notorious slum. The film begins with formerly exiled Cuban music godfather Bebo Valdes, whose quest to find his African roots leads him to Candeal, and ultimately makes him witness to Brown’s outstanding achievements. This sensuous exploration of Afro-Brazilian music includes appearances by musicians Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, and Marisa Monte among others. 2004 |BRAZIL / SPAIN |133min|Rating: General audience | Genre: Documentary Musical| Portuguese & Spanish
