Spok Frevo Orquestra arose in 1996, initially with the name Banda Pernambucana. Later it became the Orquestra de Frevo do Recife. In January 2003, the group reappeared with the name “Spok Frevo Orquestra,” name proposed by Wellington de Lima, who since then became the band’s agent, and in partnership with the musician and artistic producer Zé da Flauta. The orchestra proposes to give frevo a different treatment with modern arrangements and refined harmonies. The musicians exploit the freedom of expression in improvisations with clear influence from the jazz. “Frevo is a unique rhythm, different from all others, cheerful and with a special magic: the one to transmit happiness,” Spok explains. The band, now with 18 young and talented Pernambuco musicians, is leaded by the virtuous Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque, also known as conductor Spok who accumulates the roles of saxophonist, arranger and music director. To head this frevo “big band,” Spok has been counting on the experience and talent of his cousin Gilberto Pontes (also know as Gibasax) as music co-director, since the band’s original formation.
