The voucher will be valid until the end of 2020.
Best quality music research
Tropical, African, Brazilian and Black Music rhythms are part of the musical selection of music researcher and Dj Vinícius da Silveira, known as Niti seletor (@nitiseletor). Niti usually participates in several events and it is certain to find him at the fair that takes place at Rua Direita in Santo Antônio Além do Carmo, at the event “Rua Livre”. His presentations can be accompanied by an excellent craft beer, or a ginger nectar, all from close friends’ business.
He, who calls himself “a Bahian born in Porto Alegre”, has adopted Salvador as his city because of the music culture that exists here, as well as the street culture, parties, the sacred and the profane and the Bahianity itself.
“Music culture is within everyone here in Salvador”, says Niti.
Unable to go to the street during this phase of social isolation, Niti has been making lives called “Sons da Quarantena” to be heard from home. In each session, always at 4:20 pm, he presents a different rhythm. To know the days, you need to follow his profile. The first session was carimbó, followed by cumbia, then afro beat and baile black. For the next ones, sambareaggae, modern northeast and sambajazz lives are planned.
You can watch it on Instagram or his YouTube channel. If you missed the presentations, you can hear and learn more about his work through MIXDCLOUD: www.mixcloud.com/NITISELETOR, they are all there.
Learning from children

The lawyer and photographer Pedro Nunes is known for his strong and beautiful images of Bahia, mainly of people. The differential of his work is the proximity that the photographer builds with each of the photographed, telling their stories in clicks and also in the texts he writes on his Instagram profile @pedronunesfotografia, which has more than 17 thousand followers. With the same idea of telling stories, but with a gallery of portraits only, he has the profile @pedronobranco, with black and white photos only. It’s really beautiful.
In 2017, Pedro created an Instagram profile at the request of Luna, his eldest daughter, @manaamana_. The Instagram account wasn’t filled as the daughter wanted, but the profile was kept. Then, during the quarantine of COVID-19, Pedro decided to take pictures of his daily life at home. Thus, Mana a Mana (@manaamana_), a profile for sharing the stories of 2 sisters, Luna and Brisa, was reinvented.
According to the photographer, the idea is to capture emotions and make of this very delicate moment, something less painful. The result is black and white photos that depict the simplicity of life. The profile is still small, but it will certainly inspire several parents to make beautiful records of their little ones during this period of social isolation.

Amanda Tropicana is from Rio, but has lived in Salvador since she was nine years old. She discovered herself as a photographer “little by little”, as she says. She started her journey with photography in 2005. Since then, she has participated in 25 exhibitions, among them: “The Fifth Annual Exposure Photography Award”, at the Louvre Museum, Paris. Her work is based on Afro-Brazilian culture and religion in Bahia.
During the quarantine, she decided to share her knowledge. After a survey on the stories of her Instagram profile @amandatropicana, Amanda developed an e-book. With the material, you will learn the importance of immersing yourself in your creative processes. The content is released for free on her Instagram, in highlights. Go there!
