Our good friend Jefferson Placido, (band leader) label mates and all around great band from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the almighty "Samba Nonsense" have released a new song / video from their latest album. When the band released its debut, The Experiment Began, they dared to do something different, something unique that challenges the every day Brazilian music fan and listener. Well, they did it again with "Canção para o Bate-Bola".
New Song / Video:
Música: Canção para o Bate-Bola
Artista: Samba Nonsense
Canção para o Bate-Bola é transitivo direto do Absurdo! O Samba Nonsense é Música Lo-fi. “Colocando que a arte é, por si mesma, produtora de verdades, não pretende de maneira alguma torná-la um objeto”... Ressignificar o território do Subúrbio da Leopoldina, o Samba na Palma da Mão no seu imaginário social, estampar mais um dia de folia despercebido de cada Bate-Bola e sentir o sabor onírico do carnaval de rua e seus mistérios, assim a estética Nonsense, torna-se necessariamente uma resistência aos discursos hegemônicos. O jogo do não-sentido subverte as regras morais e simbólicas já estabelecidas, o nosso modo de entender e representar sugere. No fundo, o Nonsense abusa e revela a inconsistência dos sistemas que nos encontramos inseridos, questiona lógicas de ser e fazer.
As imagens capturadas no Bairro da Penha, Rio de Janeiro, outrora conhecida como Freguesia de N. S. da Apresentação do Irajá, hoje Subúrbio da Leopoldina e morada de N. S. da Penha, mistificam os bairros e esses territórios têm vida, vão mudando de significados no decorrer do tempo e em diferentes espaços, essa canção de autor desconhecido, são lembranças de meninos batendo a bola no chão e levantando a poeira no calor fervente do Carnaval! Bate-Bola bate o pé...
