Circo Voador

Circo Voador the is a House that has history – and that story!

Circo Voador the emerged in Arpoador Beach, on January 15, 1982. On that day, five hundred artists joined forces and formed the "Surpreendamental Flying Parade." Stopping out da Praça Nossa Senhora da Paz towards the Striker. There coming, armed the circus, with its blue and white canvas.

It was a temporary thing: Assembly was scheduled to last a month. Lasted three months, after which the supervision of the Prefecture dismantled the structure.

The artists did not gave origin. Led by Perfect Fortune, began to search for a solution that would enable them to give continuity to the project.

With the support of d. Zoe Chagas Freitas (wife of then Governor of the State of Rio de Janeiro), finally succeeded in one place: the city ceded to the group a wasteland in front of the Arcos da Lapa. In October 23, 1982, was created the free space of the Circo Voador.

Between 1982 and 1996, many things happened. At Circo Voador, despontaram many names today enshrined – among others, Cidade Negra, Lenine, Raimundos, O Rappa, Sepultura, Planet Hemp and Skank.

The traditional Flying Circus consecrated the Sunday, a gafieira by where they spent orchestras including the Tabajara, Cuba Libre, Tupy, Maestro Paulo Moura; and launched dance greats like Carlinhos de Jesus, Jayme Arôcha and Deborah Colker.

Still under the flying canvas, arose the movement of New Circus – with groups such as the Intrepid Anonymous theatre troupe, the Atrupelados and the brothers Brothers –, making exchanges with Cirque du Soleil of circus Schools of Canada and France, Russia, Argentina and Italy.

As well as invested in renovation of Brazilian culture, the Circo Voador developed social projects of great importance, as the cooperative of seamstresses Coopa Roca and Nursery Apareche.

In 1996, the Mayor César Maia and his successor Luis Paulo Conde were watching a show at Circo Voador – were celebrating the election of Earl to the Prefecture. The two politicians were vaiados by the public present.

Then the Mayor César Maia decided to close the circus, alleging irregularities. And his successor Luis Paulo Conde retained the Circus closed.

Was the Judiciary that assured the Circo Voador the right to resume its activities; and yet determined that the reconstruísse Prefecture the premises of the House, who had demolished.

And it was thus that in 2004 the Circo Voador reopened its doors completely reformed, and even today is home to large events in Lapa.

During the years of silence, there arose no space that could fill the void left by the Flying Circus in the heart of the city.

Since the reopening, the great names of Brazilian popular music have passed the stage of the circus – and the cariocas expect this living legend, which is the Circo Voador, never to close its doors.

The rightful heir to the Brazilian female rock

If there's someone on the current Brazilian rock which drags crowds of crazed fans to their shows is Priscilla Novaes Leone, popularly known as Pitty. Since flagged in his solo career with the album-now classic-"Admirável Chip Novo" (2003), passing by the celebrated "Anachronistic" (2005) and "Chiaroscuro" (2009), his performances are taken by an energetic stage presence, by a band needs and for an audience spellbound.

With the release of his new work "Setevidas" (2014) has been different. So much so that the tickets for the two days of concerts of the singer in the Circo Voador (Rio de Janeiro)-today and tomorrow-are already sold out.

The detractors of pop, of success, of the radio or media icons, women of personality and of the critical sense, can kick ahead. Pitty is icon, Muse, is sex symbol, is the question. Independent of Deprecations, almost always poorly sustained, whose criticism.

Their sources of inspiration are not always in easy reach. As a songwriter and singer spreads ideas and challenges around, always in the shape of a melody. She doesn't hide what she wants and knows the importance of be heard. Do sound for half a dozen listeners definitely was never in his plans.

Pitty boasts, with firmness, the legacy of the current national female rock royalty, following the lineage begun by Celly Campelo, headed by none other than Rita Lee, and conducted with stardom by Paula Toller and Cássia Eller in the following decades.

It's always unbelievable and exuberant watch testosterone explosion that culminates in the famous wheels of rock concerts, where males in their overwhelming majority-crazed collide in a trance from the typical weight of this musical genre. But impressive even is watching all this explosion under the command of a woman. And Pitty you know provide such moments and lead them with the mastery of who touched, from tomboy, in the underground rock scene in bands such as the Inkoma.

It's not for any one have passionate fans who flock to the shows, even in times of crisis in the record industry and in a scenario where the national rock staggered for a long time, despite strong signs of rebirth that outline for this decade.

It is clear that Pitty was present on radio and TV channels since its debut in solo career in 2003. But it is necessary to pay attention to the detail of who she is, since then, who still holds the rock of distorted guitars and aggressive riffs in the music pops light stuffed schedules of FMs and TVs, continuing the path opened for bands like the Raimundos.

And there is no Brazilian, of any age, you don't know your snippets riffs filled with treble and distortions. After all, who passed unscathed to the initial chords and chorus ' bizarre ' of "Mask", his first hit of immediate national impact?

And the summer of 2014?

Every summer has a history. It is an ephemeral passion, an unforgettable journey, a mysterious Tin or a collective whistle, this time of high temperatures always results in many stories to tell.

The station marked by tanned bodies social life is relentless. Friends gather at the beach post, suddenly a song, then comes someone with beer and ready, which was a meeting of old friends, becomes a big meeting place for locals and tourists.
It takes energy to keep up with the events that crowd the agenda of Rio at this time. But, the power is in the air. The nights are warm, the tans are eager to show off and, as the year only starts after Carnival, plenty of time to enjoy every last drop of summer.
If every summer has a history, which will be to 2014? Here are our bets.

Summer Circus
Music, cuisine and many new features. This summer promises to be the most popular show in town. Great artists there is going to be there, as Caetano Veloso (releasing the DVD Abraçaço), Gal Costa, Paulinho da Viola, Nigger and Bad Religion. But the big news of the Flying Circus is project Popsicle, which will take place fortnightly Tuesdays with shows, new music and pool bath. That's right, pool! We must not forget the delicious showerhead. Very handy for a quick refresher.
More quiet than Ipanema beach and with events happening regularly in the late afternoon, the Pedra do Leme promises to be the meeting place that summer. #bomprobolso

On the beach of the Rudder (and now arriving in Ipanema) some tents provide a pool for the kids. A wonderful choice for mothers who can relax while the children have fun in the calm waters of the pool mounted right there on the sand.

Once you get finance your summer season in Catharsis, the party of Brazilian music produced by DJ Lili Prohmann will excite more once the stone of Helm in the sunset. Good music mix with a visually stunning is success. #bomprobolso
Flying Orchestra
Sets for many summers, the Flying Orchestra rehearsals in the gardens of the MAM don't disappoint and are still a hit in the summer of 2014.  #bomprobolso
On Saturdays (from 25/01) the folks at Bubble Publisher performs the happy hour, a doors open from the Publisher, with the right pool mounted on the roof of the former factory. The public can enjoy the beach chairs, beer and a delicious bath hose, are not charged tickets, no beer. The party happens to 4:0 pm to 10:0 pm. #bomprobolso

Of course ice cream always will rock in the summer heat, but this is special. Newly arrived at the River, the Mexican group Los Paleteros brings a popsicle that is irresistible and great for an ice cream on a stick. In addition to the refreshing fruit flavors, there's still the option with creamy filling to lick their chops.
Pool Party
With this heat that makes the summer holidays with swimming pools is fashionable. And when Miss pool, you may have a shower for a quick and necessary refreshed in the middle of the party.

Hula Hoop
Child's play that won the adults. Increasingly encountering people practicing the Hula-hoop in the squares, parks and even beaches. Great for fine tuning the waist, the new sets will be a hit in the summer.

Mini Cruisers
A certain skateboard, smaller than the common, has been seen on the streets of the city. Are the so-called mini cruisers, skateboards old school that, in the years 1970/1980, made success. They rely on bigger wheels, which guarantee higher performance in asphalt pitted, with ABEC 7, to give more speed, and also with a truck narrower, which helps cornering more closed than those of longboard. Another advantage is the size. With up to 58 cm in length, it occupies little space and is easy to carry. Is very practical for anyone who uses skateboarding as means of transport in cities.

Dawn in the Center (already happened)
The CCBB has prepared the project Dawn in the Center with different attractions that will make guys dance until morning. Djs and bands take turns on Saturday 28/12, 08/01 and 11/01. These days the cultural centre opens its doors for those who want to visit the exhibitions in madruga. #bomprobolso

Weekend roadmap: Off Samba

Not only does the samba Rio de Janeiro. All Carr knows this, but often, in the midst of so many wheels of samba, raises and tambourines, it's hard to remember the variety-even more so when the Samba national day and its traditional Train approaching with 6 days of programming. Remember the house, hip-hop, tacky, classical music, soul, dub and ballet? So, are they that litters our weekend Itinerary.
