Festival ‘Favela em Casa’ starts this Friday and promotes peripheral culture



São Paulo – The Favela em Casa Festival will take peripheral culture into your home, starting this Friday night (18th). With a varied and plural program, the event seeks to promote the art of the favelas of São Paulo, in its many more types of expressions.

Today’s opening begins with a show by rapper Drik Barbosa, broadcast live on the Festival Favela em Casa channel on Youtube and on Sesc SP’s Facebook page. This Friday, Saturday (19) and Sunday (20), the festival will bring together music, theater, dance, literature and audiovisual, in addition to a series of debates, during 12 hours of programming.

Conceived and produced by Andressa Oliveira, Marcelo Rocha and Coletivo Favela em Casa, the Favela Em Casa Festival strengthens peripheral artists during the covid-19 pandemic period, since the majority did not have the resources to carry out the lives. “They were made by those who already had space and resources. As always, peripheral and independent art was at the mercy of its own conditions. The festival comes with the intention of being able to create a space to move artists and professionals ”, explains Andressa, resident of Campo Limpo, extreme south of the capital, to RBA.

Among the musical performances are Caue Gas, Emcee reads, Jota Pê, Os Ferrais, Marabu, Ôbigo, Tasha and Tracie, Red Lion, Bia Doxum, and Xote das Mina. In the literature and slams, Felipe Marinho, Kimani, Jessica Campos, Roberta Estrela D’Alva will be present. In dance, Aline Constantino, Afrobreak, Babiy Quirino, Djalma Moura, Vanessa Soares, Keyson Idd and Débora Regi.

Andressa adds that there will be a set design for live performances. “We set up a set with a set design to record the attractions of music, dance and slams in this studio. The other contents were recorded remotely, which will bring a lot of variation. ”


The festival has the support of Sesc São Paulo, which directed its structure to hold the event. The program will feature artists from different regions of Greater São Paulo, with a variety of identities and accents.

“We have a program with a variety of gender, with several women, transsexuals and the LGBT community in the program. It is a project with only peripheral people and the majority black, bringing the most diverse artistic language, even musical, such as funk, rap, samba-rock, choro, MPB and pagode ”, explains Andressa.

In addition to the artistic part, the Favela Em Casa Festival has a team of independent and peripheral workers, from communication to the set structure. Altogether, there are over 40 professionals involved. For the creator, the event is a “manifesto” that shows the potential of peripheral artistic production.

“We know how difficult it is for a black, peripheral and LGBT person to enter and build legitimacy in the market, whatever it may be. The festival being an independent construction, no matter how much we have SESC as a financial partner, it was a construction made by us and this is essential. We are maintaining our narrative and representativeness, without falling into a vague place about what the favela is. It is a professional legitimacy, with a team that can recognize itself ”, celebrates.

The festival will be held on Friday and Saturday from 7pm to 11pm and on Sunday from 3pm to 7pm.

11 million Bolivians will have free vaccine against covid




São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
