Edson Silva I still did not hear and I liked very! It can seem strange, but it is accurately as soon as I feel in relation to the collection of Mini-Livros/CDs de Chico Buarque of Holland, launched for the April Collections and that it is in the sixth of its twenty volumes. I have all musics (that I know and of which taste of the Chico), therefore would be indifferent I to acquire the collection alone for the CDs. I also find necessary to say that many of musics of the Chico, for being very slow, can not please the wheel of friends in the bar, packed for some doubtful rhythm of the present time, duly sultry for the sonorous relief provoked by the frozen beer. But the letters of the Chico, these, and almost all, are poetical and are excessively. But nor it tries to argue this next to the friends of the small bar or snack bar, them will say that you are you are of the judgment and will repeat choirs without sensible of as many musics of modernity.
But, as the Oswaldo Montenegro would say, it was not this that I wanted to say on the collection of the Chico. I want and go to say that integrant booklets of the collection are not mere complements of the CDS, with histories of musics, letters of same and the other curiosidades on the personal life and the career of the artist and its friends. They are true lessons on recent history social politics and of Brazil, mainly on ‘ ‘ Years of Chumbo’ ‘ , of the Military dictatorship. The time was lived in intense way for Chico Buarque, that was born in 1944, and had 20 years when the Military Blow occurred, that it would last up to 1985, year where a civil president, even so for indirect election, it saw College Electoral, it would come back to govern Brazil. ‘ ‘ eleito’ ‘ , Tancredo Snows, died before assuming the government, fitting this task to its vice one, Jose Sarney. A curiosity that called attention in one books, sobres the year of 68, the famous Institucional Act in. 5 (AI-5), that it banished the individual freedoms in Brazil, is that Chico lived, thus can be said, between the cross and the sword, with its type of music being contested for the engagements of the Music of Protest, that students had chosen as illustrious representative the revolutionary poet Geraldo Vandr, and the modernity of the Tropicalismo, led for Gilbert Gil and Caetano Veloso. Valley to remember that in this cultural bubbling still it had the New Bossa, the Young Guard and logical the Brazilian samba. One of historical booklets of the school of the life of Chico professor tells that certain time Gil would have pulled a choir of: ‘ ‘ surpassed, surpassed! ‘ ‘ during a presentation of Chico, that would reply insult with article in periodical, that would bring between critical elegant and cultured a phrase that serves, at least, it stops making to above all reflect in them in the life, also in the proper conditions that all we live: ‘ ‘ Nor all madness is brilliant, as nor all lucidity is velha’ ‘ . This was in message of the brilliant Chico given in the end of years 60, but it has something more modern and current? Debtor for the lesson, my expensive friend and Chico professor Edson Silva, 48 years, journalist, was born in Campinas and works as assessor of the press in Sumar.
