Luar do Sertão, one of the anthems of the Northeast of the country, was written by Catulo da Paixão Cearense and João Pernambuco  – whose origins are evident in their names. One of the most recorded songs in the country’s history, it was previously seen on Deep Brazil in the voice of Marlene Dietriech.
