The contemporary music produced in Minas has a peculiar aspect which sets it apart from any other music made in Brazil now. Outside of the focus of the great labels and using the available creativity and technology, most of the music made in the state today is recorded, produced, distributed and published in alternative ways to the rest of the world.

The people from Minas have the ability to live with both the new and the old, the cosmopolitan and provincial. They do so by finding a connection between Minas's old capital city, world cultural heritage Ouro Preto and the new capital, planned Belo Horizonte, set apart by 100km, as they cross at least three centuries connecting distinct references. From the baroque to the modernism, from the tradition to the avant-garde, the people from Minas Gerais are down to earth and stare beyond the peak of the mountains that surround them. An ethnic cauldron where beliefs and cultures from various peoples blend, Minas is one of the great Brazilian cultural reserves, unending natural resource and constantly renewing itself.
