On the Air – Short Documentary

“On the outskirts of Olinda, radio and music meet to strengthen a means of communication that surpasses physical distances and persists through generations. From fathers and mothers to sons and daughters, the popular culture elevates the self-esteem of those with song, dance and the drum while incorporating new media. Video (in PT) produced in March of 2009 at the Cultural Center of Coco de Umbigada with the participation of several locally well-known cultural figures.

“Nas periferias de Olinda, rádio e música se encontram fortalecendo linguagens que superam distâncias físicas e persistem através das gerações. De pais e mães para filhos e filhas, a cultura popular eleva a auto-estima das pessoas com o canto, a dança e o tambor, e incorpora novas mídias. Vídeo produzido durante as Oficinas Livres de Rádio no Centro Cultural Coco de Umbigada, em março de 2009, com a participação de Mãe Beth de Oxum, Mãe Lúcia de Oyá, Zeca do Rolete, Neto Tranca Rua e Coco de Umbigadinha.”
