AUDIO PORTRAIT – dinho ouro preto
BRASÍLIA ANONYMOUS SOCIETY
Dinho Ouro Preto, leader of the band CAPITAL INICIAL, is from a family of diplomats, born around power… CAPITAL INICIAL is a protest band… the more incisive protest songs came from groups from Brasília, most of them children of the elite in power. What’s the origin of this paradox of the “rock Brasília” generation, who denies its origin for political causes and flags for a new conscience of social costumes? In times of political adjustments, where Brazil and its capital seem to not belong to anyone (BRASÍLIA ANONYMOUS SOCIETY), this paradox originates in information from behind curtains that none of us knows. Music as tribune, be it in the Vietnam war or the marginalized areas and prisons raps, is it really a transformation vehicle? Which are the most representative songs in the national political protest and the ones that mark the international scene?
The series AUDIO PORTRAIT delivers the word so the artist can develop a theme that has never been talked about. It is a show about the person, not the persona, giving the spectator an opportunity to join intimately the real person. It’s like a casual conversation where the spectator is in the second row, behind the silhouette of another participant.
It is a show that stemmed from the documentary WHITE BLACK and BLUES with BB KING, filmed in a differential format… it wasn’t just the music… it was a testimony about an issue that has impacted his career and, more than anything, a life’s story. In BB KING’s case, as a blues musician, touring across America for over sixty years, he narrated the changes in African-American civil rights during the second half of the 20th century, where music had an instrumental role. As an eyewitness to everything that was going on, he has credit as a consistent narrator, mixing narrative with musical performances. It’s not the career… it’s a point of view… an AUDIO PORTRAIT. Music is only the frame where history, in form of a testimony, truly shines… great developments narrated by someone who lived them.
