I decided to invite poets from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro to participate in a Sarau in the Favela. Each in their protected houses.but In this way, I am trying to be closer to the most vulnerable people, the people of the Favela. The first favela to have a victim of the Corona virus is Cidade de Deus. Place where I worked for 47 years. I can't walk to Slum, but I can fly in thought and give encouragement to friends. Today I have friends and many slums and joining in a glass was just the beginning. First I made the invitation, joined the videos, downloaded applications, edited, summon the poets to publicize the video, posted on YouTube, publicized it on the network and I'm already receiving videos for the second edition of Sarau.na Slums. I am also preparing an online soiree. As I am very involved in the dynamics of this action, I am limited to looking at the network that takes time. I am happy with the result is knowing that this movement is being important for other people. In such a difficult time we are taking love in this soiree video.
