Genival Lacerda, with his forró, sang in the rhythm of irreverence – RBA



São Paulo – On leaving, on Thursday (7), with 89 years and 68 of career, Genival Lacerda won the reverence of artists of different styles and generations. From Alceu Valença to Geraldo Azevedo, from Marcelo D2 to Pato Fu, from Daniela Mercury to Leci Brandão. The sambista, by the way, several times won rennet cheese on the visits she received.

Ivete Sangalo, on the other hand, said that it was his first show that she watched, as a child, taken by her father. Chico César, from Paraiba like Genival, recalled that he liked it since he was a child, long before meeting him and recording together. “What a mood! And what a grace in its silly rhythmic divisions. What a huge artist! I keep this memory of joy, of your way of enjoying life ”, posted the singer and composer.

“He’s watching …”

On the road for some time, Genival Lacerda – who would turn 90 in April – definitely became known in 1975, with Severina Xique-Xique. It was a forró in partnership with João Gonçalves who in the chorus repeated the verse – sly, as Chico would say – “He’s keeping an eye on her boutique”. Cited by Marisa Monte on the debut album by the singer from Rio de Janeiro, released in 1989. The song was recorded, among others, by the vocal group MPB4.

Musical critic Mauro Ferreira also recalls, on the portal G1 that in 1975 Genival already had two decades of phonographic career, started with the recording of Coconut 56, partnership with João Vicente. And with a work associated with joy, as he wrote: “Genival was one of the irreverent faces of the Northeastern musical genres generically labeled as forró”.

Pandemic victim

The composer died as a result of complications caused by covid-19. He had been hospitalized for over a month in a hospital in Recife. When he left his Campina Grande (where he was buried yesterday with his mother, Severina), he went to the capital of Pernambuco in 1953. Eleven years later, to Rio de Janeiro. “These were very difficult days. The most difficult moments of my life, when all Brazilian families are going through this, with family members ”, said the singer João Lacerda, son of the artist (who had 10), about the hospitalization period.

“From a rhythmic point of view, the artist’s work gravitated to coconuts, xaxados and baiões, among other similar genres. And that affinity was above all in the light and humorous lyrics ”. wrote Mauro Ferreira.

So, just remember the titles of some of your successes. Cases, among others, of Cell Radinho (Namd and Graça Góis) Kill Véio it’s the Rock of Jegue (Bráulio de Castro and Célio Roberto), also known as Who is this donkey?. “His irreverence is what most marks the people,” said his son João.

incompetence, neglect, omission and violation, says expert




São Paulo – The record abstention (51.5%) on the first day of the National High School Examination (Enem) 2020 reflects the incompetence, neglect, undue omission of functional performance and violation of the duty of the Ministry of Education (MEC). The assessment was made today (18) by the executive president of the organization Todos pela Educação, Priscila Cruz.

Data from the National Institute of Educational Studies and Research Anísio Teixeira (Inep), the MEC organ responsible for the exam, of the 5,523,029 enrolled, 2,680,697 (48.5%) attended. A record abstention of 51.5%. In Enem’s 20 years, the record so far had been broken in 2009: 37.7%.

Enem exclusion

“The # Enem2020 with 51.5% effectiveness in excluding students”, Gregório Grisa, professor at the Federal Institute of Rio Grande do Sul (IFRGS) and specialist in educational data, recorded in his social networks.

The president of the National Union of Students (UNE), Iago Montalvão, recalled that the result confirmed the prognoses of the student entities. “Just as we said. Record abstention. Because the students didn’t want to take the exam. Not! Because they didn’t feel safe, and sometimes they were even prevented from entering crowded rooms. Another poorly organized Enem in the Bolsonaro government. The student loses! ”

Federal deputy Glauber Braga (Psol-RJ) mocked the Minister of Education, Pastor Milton Ribeiro. “The 1st day of Enem had a record abstaining of 51.5%. Most students did not. Several who were unable to enter and did not receive adequate satisfaction. The Minister of Education still had the courage to say that it was ‘a success’. The fight against denialism is daily. ”
