Several Brazilian artists have recorded a song under the title of ‘Vira, vira voz’ (‘change, change the vote’) that went viral
A group of Brazilian figures of art and culture, led by the singers Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, launched a video this Friday through social networks in which they show their support for Lula da Silva before the elections for the presidency of the next Sunday in Brazil. Denise Fraga, Daniela Mercury, Nando Reis, Mart’nália, Drica Moraes, Cissa Guimaraes, Alinne Moraes, Claudia Abreu, Zezé Polessa and Bruno García have recorded a song under the title ‘Vira, vira voz’ (‘change, change the vote’) that went viral.
The song’s lyrics talk about looking into the future, providing the children with a pencil, and taking away their gun. They also invite you to change the vote of María and José, of the boss and the baker, the father and the daughter, and to spread the change of government on social networks. In the video, the protagonists are seen imitating a gesture that made Bolsonaro famous in which he wields a gun. The artists, with their fingers, turn it over and form an L, in clear reference to Lula.
A few days ago, Paulo Coelho, one of the most widely read Brazilian writers in the world, with sales in more than 170 countries and who has been translated into 88 languages, and who is very anti-Bolsonaro, wrote a tweet in which he said: “Less than 2 weeks of the Brazilian elections, I will basically tweet in Portuguese, since I need to add my grain of sand to remove the current president from power. Thank you for your patience”.
