Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Re-elected

 

Brazil 2014 Presidential Elections

 

Dilma Roussef - from site aquivoceficasabendo

On Sunday 26th October 2014, Brazilians experienced one of the tightest election contests in their history. The eagerly awaited results came out at around eight o’clock in the evening and confirmed a second mandate for President Dilma Rousseff, who won the presidential elections with a very narrow majority of 3.28%.
The country was politically strongly divided, with the South of the country mainly voting for the political candidate Aécio Neves and the northern part of the country preferring Dilma. President Dilma now has to bring the Brazilian people together by working on issues that matter to the whole population like improving education, fighting corruption and revitalizing the Brazilian economy.

RIP – Jorge Selarón

 

RIP – JORGE SELARÓN (Chile, 1947 — Rio de Janeiro, 10th January 2013)

Tragic day for Rio as Selarón was found dead in the famous steps of Lapa, on January 10, 2013. His body was found burned.

Jorge Selarón was born in Chile in 1947. He traveled, lived and worked as a painter and sculptor in over 50 countries around the world before arriving and deciding to settle in Rio de Janeiro in 1983. He began renovating the steps on a whim in 1990.

Many times, his phone was cut off and he was threatened to be evicted from his house due to being unable to afford the living costs. He sold many paintings and accepted donations from locals and travelers to continue his work. Since 1977, Selarón claimed to have sold over 25,000 portraits, all featuring the same pregnant woman which mostly funded his work. It was a labor of love for the artist who resided in the same house by the steps he lived in when he started the work. Read more →

100 Years of Luiz Gonzaga!

 

Luiz Gonzaga do Nascimento (Exu, December 13, 1912 — Recife, August 2, 1989) was a very prominent Brazilian folk singer, songwriter, musician and poet.

Born in the countryside of Pernambuco (Northeastern Brazil), he is considered to be responsible for the promotion of northeastern music throughout the rest of the country. He is also known as the “king of baião” and “Gonzagão”.

Son of a peasant and accordion player, Gonzaga was attracted to the 8-bass accordion at a very early age, but at that time he used to accompany his father by playing the zabumba (type of bass drum) and singing at parties and religious celebrations. He left home in 1930 to join the army, and toured Brazil with an army band until 1939. Read more →
