During the period 1906 to 1910, Villa Lobos embarked upon a series of trips to Brazil's North-East and deep into the interior of the country. These trips took him to Bahia, Sergipe, Recife, Fortaleza, Manaus, and to Belem in the state of Pará. 
The best source on the Internet for information on Belem and Pará is Sergio Koreisha's Meu Brasil website
