The 4th edition of the Music and Human Rights Concert was sold out and the result shone during the show: full house, with 1,500 seats filled, to celebrate CESE’s work and the unprecedented concert, in Salvador (BA), between Orkestra Rumpilezz and the singer and composer Gilberto Gil. All income from the concert will be reverted to the social projects supported by CESE.
This year’s edition was special, as the CESE completes 45 years of activity all over Brazil. To register this mark in the history of the organization, this year the Music and Human Rights Project brought something different: an open essay for young people of Rumpilezzinho (initiative of social inclusion through music, promoted by Orkestra Rumpilezz) and projects supported by Ecumenical Service Coordination (Acopamec, GAEEC, Levante Popular da Juventude e Reprotai).
Continuing the celebration, the booklet on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was relaunched this year. To extend the reach of the material, was also held, on the day of the concert (04/14), in the foyer of the Castro Alves Theater, a celebratory exhibition of the 70th anniversary of the International Declaration of Human Rights. The public was able to see 30 articles of the Booklet of Human Rights, which had graphic design elaborated by Bamboo Publishing.
The TVE host, Vânia Dias, welcomed the audience, presenting the work of the SESC, the Project and the attractions that would follow. Orkestra Rumpilezz opened the presentations with its orchestral group that gathers percussion and wind, giving prominence to the Bahian ancestral music, which belong to the candomblé houses tradition, under the influence of modern jazz. Then, Gil joined the group and sang hits like “Aqui e agora”; “Logunedé”; the “Raça Humana”, “A paz” and “Balafon”.
