Created in 17th December 1986 by Alexandre Rodrigues, this group appears due to the split with a another group.

Since it foundation, the group has investigated the many etno-folcloric items, since the dance, the music, the song, the clothes and much more.

In 1989, the group promotes the first interchange with a group from the mainland Portugal. Since this time, has promoted many exchanges not only but national groups, but also international groups.

A another reference goes to the realization of biannual folklore festivals, the last one celebrated in 2015 (11th national edition and 9th international) , being like this the first group in the island to transmit a festival with this dimension.

Nowadays with 29 years of history, the Group folclore do rochão, has 40 elements and a new structure, ready for new challenges with the main aim to preserve and to recover our regional identity.
