The population of Monte Alegre gathered last Saturday night, 07/23/22, around the bandstand, to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Sarau no Bandstand. This project is the result of a dream conceived in the classroom between teacher and student, during high school when the latter was studying, and came to fruition in July 2017.
Along the way, the project has gained the support of new members of the community, as each month the resisters meet to discuss a social issue, recite poems, listen to music and create bonds. With this harmony, the project solidifies. It is worth noting that there is no financial purpose in this action, but the embrace of artists, poets, musicians and others with the purpose of preserving, supporting and rescuing the local culture.
The plurality of presentations, a hallmark of the Sarau, was one of the characteristics of the night, with the presentation of the “Ouro Branco” gang from the community of Santa Rosa do Ermírio, Poço Redondo; declamation of the monologue “Magoas do Caboclo” by the gloriense writer Dona Janete made by the poet and actor Rafael de Souza; poem recitations by students Adriene Costa and Kerolly Louranny. In addition to them, the public was graced with poems by Eunice Guimarães (academic of the Municipalist Academy of Sergipe), Alaide Costa (academic of the Sergipe Academy of Cordel), Maria Rita (president of the Academia Sancristovense de Letras e Artes) and Fred Dantas (coordinator of the Sergipe Poetic Café). There was music with Johny Fiel, Cris Rodrigues, Zuza and the band Forró Alegre, moda de viola with Humberto, Luidi and Yudi (child singers) and the Sergipe duo Chico Queiroga and Antônio Rogério. There was also an exhibition of handicrafts produced by artisans Fátima and Helena.
In addition to this cultural diversity, the “Amigo(a) do Sarau no Coreto” Award was given to three people who contributed and continue to contribute to the project. This award is a way that the creators (Carlos Alexandre and Matheus Borges) found to honor people who believe in action. The honorees were Felipe Alves da Silva for always making the sound available for the realization of editions, Gismário Oliveira Correia Filho (Geninho de Zé de Dé) for being the author, when he was a councilor, of the bill recognizing the Soiree in the Bandstand as Heritage Cultural and Intangible Municipality and Martha Danielly do Nascimento Melo for embracing each of the project’s actions.
In order to raise funds to promote the actions of the Sarau, a raffle was held for a literary kit, iron and stove, with the winners being Kauã Alves (Literary Kit) with the number 42 and Robson Soares (Ferro e Stogão) with the numbers 146 and 149).
