The Tremor festival invited Sam the Kid to take part in a unique project that brings together young rappers from various parts of the Azores and the Rabo de Peixe Music School Orchestra.

Over the course of a week, we followed, camera in hand, the coming together of these two worlds in the auditorium of a school in Rabo de Peixe. In this unlikely encounter, orchestral arrangements of original songs by the rap group were co-produced, in a mutual exchange between two genres that rarely connect, especially in this local context.

A heartfelt tribute was also paid to Sandro G, a pioneering Azorean rapper, where each of the selected rappers wrote a verse for the song "Eu Não Vou Chorar", of which only the chorus and the musical arrangement were kept.

During this time we realised the variety of genres that these artists explore, from trap to old school hip hop. The diversity was also visible in the currents, dialects and expressions, also due to the fact that some of the artists were from other islands.

"There's a difference between a rapper from the top of the island of São Jorge or a rapper from the Velas area, and even more from island to island.

Their accent, their slang, the places they know, people's way of being change a lot, and this is very much reflected in the spirit, in the attitude of each rapper."
NTK — rapper de São Jorge.

Despite the differences in genres, experiences and backgrounds of the various rappers present, a family spirit permeated the entire collaboration. This feeling of togetherness reached its peak at the final concert, where the spirit was reflected in an audience full of friends, family and other rappers also from Rabo de Peixe.
