ブラジル滞在もあと2日

 Carnavalである。同時に複数箇所で面白いライブがあるのでネットカフェなんかで道草食ってる時間はないのだが、さすがに飛ばしttぱなしで疲れたので、思い出したことを書いといたるわ。Recifeの街は、Antigoとよばれる旧市街、その北のSantoAntonioを中心にした商業地、BoaVistaを入り口にした交通の要という3つの島のような地形に便宜上分けることが出来、それぞれは3本ずつの橋で繋がっていて、そのなかの10箇所程度でさまざまなconcertsやparadeが行われる。それぞれの広さは歩いて回れる程度だが、carnaval中は寿司詰めで身動きが取りにくい。さらに中心部は厳しい交通規制がかかるので猛烈に渋滞する。空いていれば30分程度のところにOlindaという美しい街があって、ひなびたcarnavalをやっているのだが、日没後に双方の町を往復するのは得策ではない。分身の術を使うべし。バスはかなり頻繁に走っていて使いやすく、期間ちゅうはほぼ終夜運転している。憂さを晴らしすぎてラりとるガキ以外はやさしい人たちである。internet通信速度は激烈に遅い。Informationの事務所で配られているprogrammeはほぼ信用できない。新聞にその日の予定が掲載される。今までに見たBig Artistsは、Lenine、Carlinhos Brown、JorgeBenJor、Elba Ramalho、Ze Ramalhoなど。太鼓の過剰な音楽の嫌いな太鼓奏者の私としては、毎日がとてもつらいのだが、FrevoとMarchaが一日うt聞けるのはいい。ほかにCarblinhosやIndigenaの祭りも郊外で催されるので、今k来って来る>時間が来たではまた

Recife, the last destination in Brasil

Now I am in Recife, the last destination in Brasil. I will spend the carnival week here. The programm had already been published and it is very clear to be understood. I had already got the programme booklet, map and index of the programme of the carnaval. I had already determined what, wen and where to see. Yesterday, as soon as I arrived here early in the morning, I went to the centr of the city and another aera of Boa Viagem and had got almost all of the informations and grasped the heart of this city. The town is decorated beautifuuly for the carnaval, no, may be already begun, because many people were drunken and the streets were scattered with so many paperflowers. Peoples in Recife are extremely kind and gentle. This town is like a suburbern city, deferent from Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. I am staying north of the outskirt of the city. Here is surround by the Favelas but I feel no danger, very kind peoiple always watching me so safe. I will go to the centro to see the Cabochinhos parades and Roda de Choro in Olinda in this evening. Some neighborhoods will bring me there. I played Bahyon and Shotti? with them and appered to the event held at the Nishinomiya Yamagutchi Hall early in this morning of Brasilian tme. I saw, I ate, I heard and I am enjoying... ad I go ahead.

The last night in Salvador

 It is the last night in Salvador. I love this town, so I don't want to leave. I missed so many chance to meet good music. Especialy Choro, if you want to hear it, go "Teatro Vila Velmelha" in the aerea "Campo Grande" on Monday. Every Monday except carnaval season, you can meet "Roda de Choro". I knew it before departure. But I didn't know Portugese exactly. "Segunda Feiras de 1/2 e 22/2" I read it as "all Friedays between 1-22/ Fev." but it means "1 and 22/ Fev." So, I could not see them unfortunately. Regreter mingi mingi. Forget and Go ahead.
 "Sarau de Brown" was extremely wonderful experience for me. It was a vast spectacle event. Retrofolia, Trio Electrico... some Frevo groupes were playing very good. Many entertainers were among the audiences, fashion show, samba parade, circus show.... at last, tonderful concert of Carlinhos Brown, featured with Bebel Gilberto, Ive Sangalao, Aline Alixto, Claudia Lette... etc... very happy 5 hours!
 I will go ahead to Recife tomorrow. Kuna I will stay my house-owner's friend, and 11/ Fev. I will appear the event on "Nishinomiya Yamaguchi Hall" through Skype. You must come to this event and meet me and concert by "Conjunto Chove Chuva", this time, very nice set members will participate. It must be a good experience for you. OK, see you evening of 11/ Fev at "Nishinomiya Yamaguchi Hall"

Week-end in Salvador

 It is very good evening. Now I become so familiar to this exciting town. Very lively but enough security, people are very gentle. It is Pre-carnaval time, there is so many events but almost all of them are percussion groupe. I saw many ensaios, capoeira and candomble, but I can get no satisfaction. Their music is very strong but no deepness, I need some darkness with music. Now I become to be able to speak Portugese a little. Now I can ask them allmost everything I need. I bought some percussions I need and send them to Japan on Monday. I saw some good pandeiro made by GOPE, it is very light weight, good for Choro, price of them about JPY6,000, if you want to buy, please let me know, I can sell you about JPY10,000 including shipping cost. And I saw some parts for drums and percussions that we cannot get in Japan, for example, 10 inch snare side head, snappy for 10 inch etc. If you want them, and if you want something you want, please let me know. Vamos share it together. I will participate in a pagode at some dranken bar tonight, and I will go to concert of Carlinhos Brown with Bebel Gilberto. I will go ahead. Let's increase our courage!

3days passed in Salvador

 1/30 I looked ensaio publique do Bloco Vittoria, but in these days i feel very very sad. I don't know why. I cannot understand why all of them were delightful and why they can enjoy? For me it is merely banging noise. It has no groove only but pulse. I cannot recognise this as a music. I saw also some other blocos in RJ and live, but I cannot stop feeling sad.... very sad...
 1/31-2/01, 27 hours bus trip, it was very very pleasant time for me... fantastic sightseeings and friendly people... countryside of Brasil is very good.
 Now I am staying at a pousada ao lado de Largo do Peroulinho, the historic center of Salvador, it is so fantastic sight, filled with muisic allday long and allnight long. I had already looked and participated some roda de Samba, Pagode, roda de Choro, Festa de Iyemanjah, and Ensaio publique do bloco Muzenza, it is called the most Black African Percussions Groupe, but I feel very sad... now I become understand the reason a little, it may be they are also looking for their roots. They are not recognize their roots but they are looking for that and feel ittle bit of pain... their drumsounds is not delightful but strong pain, I feel vary sad again... TONIGHT, I"'m going to Jorge Ben's concert at Teatro Castro Alvez.
