About the film: Originally from Bahia and considered today one of the most globalized musical movements in the world, Axé is a musical rhythm that carries in its essence a good part of all the musical and cultural syncretism of Bahia. The documentary brings together interviews and archive images outlining the birth of Axe.
“Axé: Music of a People it’s a trip through Brazilian most popular musical genre in the history of the nation.” – IMDb
