Frevo, the most famous and popular folk music style from Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, is known for its vibrant and intense rhythm, colourful costumes aesthetic and happy atmosphere. The name "frevo" comes from the word in Portuguese "ferver", which means "to boil". The geometric representation makes reference to the traditional umbrella, the iconic element of Frevo style. Also, it illustrates the music compass reverberating through the blocks of Olinda, where the main carnival of the state happens.
