RÉQUIEM, SINGLE AND VIDEOCLIP: A PRAYER FOR THE MURDERED INDIGENOUS
Brazil reexperiences a political process that takes away lands from the natives and suppresses their culture. The exaltation of what comes from outside overpowers all the value that our civilizational matrices perpetuate throughout their existence: the respect for Nature and the sustainable coexistence with it. The indigenous identity has been politically marginalized and its aesthetic and cultural decrease are now a part of the strategic suppression routine of the people who live in lands protected against the irresponsible and disorderly exploitation of natural resources
Réquiem is the most tribal track of the album and its videoclip creates a contrast with the belief of a colonialist superiority at the expense of what is considered mere indigenous primitivism. Recorded at the Amazon Theater, Manaus landmark and greatest architectural symbol, the videoclip has a script that leads the story of a personified Amazon’s cultural reappropriation. The indigenous sons, in the theater, aesthetically flirt with the ludic dramaturgy of the Opera Festival that annually takes place in that same space. That brings the reflection of the exploration of Amazon’s death as a spectacle.
