Internal Radio – songs translating feelings.
Every day songs come up in my mind as a reflex of my heart. Everyone has its own special way to talk to God, to self and to connect to the world. Music is my way.
So I would like to open this space to share with you these feelings, ideias and inspirations.
Internal Radio #5 Haiti (Caetano Veloso/ Gilberto Gil) – 20/4/2016-
Ninguem. Ninguem eh cidadao.
Todos. Todos nos somos hipocritas.
E nao importa se olhos do mundo inteiro por um momento possam estar voltados para a ameaca da nossa democratizacao.
E ao ouvir o “silencio sorridente” apos a primeira votacao de pedido de impeachment no domingo 17 de abril de 2016. Justificamos o injustificavel e permitimos que um congresso majoritariamente corrupto e sob investigacao tome essa decisao. Do outro lado tambem justificamos o injustificavel quando acreditamos na total inocencia da presidente diante do maior esquema de corrupcao dentro da Petrobras e de que ela “apenas” queria fortalecer o seu governo tendo Lula como ministro. Mas eh constitucional um impechment sem evidencias? Quem nao estah envolvido em corrupcao para fazer esse julgamento?
Pense no Brasil. “Reze” pelo Brasil.
O Brasil eh aqui. O Brasil nao eh aqui.
No one. No one is a citizen.
All. All of us are hypocrites.
It doesn’t matter if the eyes of the entire world , for a single instant can be looking towards the threat to our democratization.
We hear the “smiling silence” after the first vote section for presidential impeachment on Sunday April 17th, 2016. We justify the unjustifiable and we allow a congress made of corrupt politicians in its majority to take this decision. In the other hard, we also justify the unjustifiable when we believe in the total innocence of a president regarding the “Petrobras” greatest corruption scandal discovered during her government and that she “only” wanted to fortify her government by nominating Lula as her minister. But is it constitutional to impeachment someone without showing evidences? Who is not involved in corruption to be able to make this judgement?
Think of Brazil. “Pray” for Brazil.
Brazil is here. Brazil is not here.

Tem veleiros nos verdes ao longe
There are sailboats in the distance green
E o nascente promete um luar
