Cordel do Fogo Encantado is a Brazilian band from Arcoverde who mix different Brazilian musical genres, such as samba de côco, toré indígena, embolada, and reisado, with pop-rock melodies. The band derives its name from cordel, a type of handmade illustrated pamphlet literature made by woodcut artists in northeastern Brazil. Cordel do Fogo Encantado is associated with Pernambuco's Mangue Beat, a musical movement that is repopularizing traditional northeastern Brazilian folkloric musical genres by mixing them with rock and funk music.
