JAM do Barraco #55

Finally Saturday the 8th of September has come, the day of the fourth JAM do Barraco. The day starts with the film workshop given by Rodrigo. Luis, his student, has a lot to film on Praça #55, the square next to the hostel/cultural centre “Arte na Favela”where the JAM is going to take place. People walking up and down the street, filling the refrigerator in the shack with beer, Eddu making a bench of carpet and tubes that normally function as electricity poles, Carlinhos connecting wires for the sound, laptops and the beamer that projects visuals on the wall above the graffiti painting.

The party starts at 7, people gather on the square and by passers stop to watch the musicians that take turns in jamming together. People enjoy the music and a beer and some dare to taste the ‘arabic pizza’ with humus. Next to the shack Maria set out her collection of self-made bracelets and in the mean time she braids tereres in hair.
