BRAZIL CALLING 2019

BRAZILIAN MUSIC FESTIVAL

 


THE SOUND OF FREEDOM IN DICTATORIAL TIMES

The first edition of the Brazilian music festival "Brazil Calling" addresses Brazilian music in the years of dictatorship and its impact on cultural production in the fifth largest country in the world.

The fascination of the music festival lies in the role of music in times of suppression. During the years of dictatorship, the Brazilian population was deprived of its political voice and participation. this fact created a generation of alienated rather than political beings. Music became one of the only means of talking about themes and things that could not be expressed during the period of suppression. This fact helped immensely in the creation of a generation of musicians capable of using music texts as a means of expressing hidden messages. 

 



DER KLANG DER FREIHEIT IN DIKTATORISCHEN ZEITEN

Das brasilianische Musikfestival "Brazil Calling“ thematisiert in seiner ersten Ausgabe die brasilianische Musik in den Jahren der Diktatur und ihre Auswirkungen auf die kulturelle Produktion des fünftgrößten Landes der Welt.

Der besondere Reiz des Musikfestivals liegt in der Rolle der Musik in Zeiten der Unterdrückung. Denn in den Jahren der Diktatur war die brasilianische Bevölkerung ihrer politischen Stimme und Beteiligung weitestgehend beraubt. Eine Generation entfremdeter und unpolitischer Wesen wurde geschaffen. 
Musik war die einzige Möglichkeit, offen vor Anderen über Dinge zu sprechen, die in Zeiten der Unterdrückung nicht zum Ausdruck gebracht werden durften. So entwickelte sich in Brasilien eine Generation von Musikern mit der Fähigkeit, ihre Musik als Ausdrucksmittel und Sprachrohr für versteckte Botschaften zu nutzen. 


O SOM DA LIBERDADE NOS TEMPOS DA DITADURA

O Festival de Música Brasileira Brazil Calling fará uma reflexão e apresentação de shows que repercutem a música brasileira nos anos da ditadura brasileira(1964-1985) e seu forte impacto na produção cultural do quinto país do Mundo.

A temática principal do Festival Brazil Calling é o papel da MPB em tempos de opressão. Os anos da ditadura subtraem parte da população, que foi em grande parte privada de sua voz política e participação, criando uma geração de seres apolíticos e distantes da realidade que ocorria nas dependências dos órgãos de repressão. A censura foi imposta e a a música era a única maneira de falar abertamente sobre coisas que não podiam de outra forma serem expressas em tempos de opressão. No Brasil, por exemplo, uma geração de músicos emergiu com a capacidade de usar sua música como meio de expressão, valendo-se de mensagens ocultas e transversais para transmitir suas ideias.
