This event was created in Brazil, in 2004. It began in the churches of the town of Olinda, before expanding to other Brazilian cities such as Recife, João Pessoa, Ouro Preto, Tiradentes, Paraty and Rio de Janeiro and having, in July 2016, its first edition in Amarante. This last one featured renowned artists and more than 40 music related events, such as concerts, cinema sessions, poetry sessions, workshops and discussion forums. A second edition of the festival is scheduled for 2017, and is expected to gather and involve a total of about 20.000 people.
