"We are not a rock band. Neither are we a "forró" band. Much less a folk group. Our roots: they are in the mud of Pernambuco, which we are made of. Our influences: we are suburban guys from the periphery of Recife, fertilized by the industrial winds blowing all over the planet. - To tell the truth, we are crazy about music! We are the group Cascabulho!"
José Manuel de Lennos Pereira
Cascabulho are one of the most important bands to come out of Recife in Pernambuco, Northeast Brazil. They are a vital part of a broader cultural scene - the mangue beat movement - a youth culture movement that arose in Recife during the 1990's. Cascabulho stand for rhythm, joy and a creative use of local and global influences, producing original Brazilian music of high quality with a social conscience. "Hunger Gives You A Headache", the band's first album is dedicated to the memory of the performer, composer and revolutionary musician Jackson do Pandeiro.
