Notes from my Brazil notebook...
On the telly I’m seeing the Forro and Frevo processions, the Afoxe and Maracutu, the tribal and the samba.
They’ve all got dances! Songs, rhythms and dances that are theirs. We don’t have dances. Let’s make some dances! Let’s make them up! Let’s get people who can do that kind of thing to make them up! And then do them again at special times.
Christmas dances. “Tomorrow will be my dancing day” - What dance was that? I’d like to dance at Christmas. Let’s find or make Christmas dances!
