CRIANÇA ESPERANÇA - CHILDHOPE
Hummingbird flies across Brazil, spreading its wings to convey “A Child’s View”Hummingbird’s Cultural Group is to participate in the traditional, Nation-wide Brazilian Television programme called “Criança Esperança” (ChildHope), organized by the prestigious TV Globo and UNESCO. More than 50 children and young people are representing Hummingbird at the event, which goes live on Saturday night, August 6th., in a mini musical spectacular called “A Child’s View”.
The Banda Beija-Flor is honoured to present their self-composed music, which conducts the emotional 4-minute musical, entirely conceived by our children – the real Hummingbirds of our “Hope”, and which combines Hummingbird’s regular activities such as Break-dance, Guitar, Percussion and Capoeira.
The performance illustrates the biography of thousands of street children, whom lost and alone wander the pathways of an unjust Brazil, their views and sentiments constantly searching for comprehension, only to find prejudice and abandonment.
An open-air rehearsal takes place on the football grounds in front of the Hummingbird Activity Centre in connection with TV Globo's filmtake to be used during their Nation-wide programme, Criança Esperança on 6th. August.
Hummingbird’s positive actions wake in them a new life; a dignified life deserved by any human being. However, the main target of our message is each and every one of us because WE are the one's who really need to wake up, to do our share.
Therefore our chorus-line is: Wake up my Brazil!
Applaud, watch and sing with us!
