Ronaldo Miranda finished his Suite Nordestina in 1982.  Suite Nordestina (Northeastern Suite) is a four-movement choral suite freely based on folk melodies from Northeastern Brazil.  Because of its folk content, the arrangements have a certain nationalistic flavor with simple harmonies and syncopated rhythmic patterns.  It is also interesting to notice the presence of the embolada style in the second and fourth movements.  Embolada is a poetic-musical process from the coastal areas of NE Brazil characterized by a somewhat declamatory melody, very fast and repetitive passages, and a comical text.
