Bida Airada is a 23 Milhas project, in Ílhavo.
For more than 8 years, the Bida Airada Orchestra has come together to create, develop, rehearse and present collaborative work with the community of Ílhavo. We’ve already made a record, we’ve written a book, we’ve done so much. This year, faced with the difficulty of not being able to get together, hug each other, discuss our ideas eye to eye… we will not let Bida Airada fall.
We are preparing this year’s edition with our artistic team, which has António Serginho and, for the first time, Susana Lage. We are, with the 23 Milhas team, preparing new lines of communication, exploration and collaborative creation, always in contact with potential participants of Bida Airada. We went to Radio 23 Milhas last week and proposed a small challenge to the listeners: to send us sounds, images or words representative of your quarantine. Today we present the result again on the radio, made from this weekend’s sent material. The family music of Bernardo Gomes and Catarina Gomes, the images and the word of Rita DF, that introduction is from the message of Rosário Vieira, the birds and images of Ana Margarida Bastos, the tenderness of the text and the photo of Mariana Barros and her grandfather, pictures of Marta Tacão, Vitória Teles and Ana Sofia Duarte, the humor of João Mesquita Santiago and an excerpt from the poem of Pessoa, sent by Dulce Ferreira. And the most intense moment, those very strong photos of Mafalda Oliveira. We hope you enjoy!
