The scenes getting into my lenses in Malawi

 

Kawoza River Band

One of these days I was looking at the street in front of Music Crossroads when, suddenly, I see five men with instruments. The bass guitar espesicially called my attention because it reminded me of a video I’d watched on Youtube while I was in Brazil, looking for references about Malawi. I literally jumped up and ran after them to ask where they were going to play. They told me that they could just as well start to play right there, just to earn some money. So, they sat and started to perform. Soon, a lot of people gathered around to watch.

 

The boy and Goat

Sitting inside the car, I was trying to registrate the huge quantity of scenes and landscapes on our way to Nkhotakota. The boy watching the road (which was totally empty of cars, except for us) spotted us and pointed at us as I took the photo.

 

Shames

This picture is a part of my photography project about toys and games of the children in Chilinde. On my way back home I saw this boy, Shames, running with this tyre among all the people walking through the street. Smiling – he seemed to be a part of a betting race, and probably he was in the leading position.

 

Ananda and neighbors.

The games in our street are disputed. Ananda and I were waiting our turn to jump the rope with the children. Meanwhile, we got to take some pictures with them.

 

Eduardo Henrique Scaramuzza Tubaldini

Coming from a family of passionate educators, Eduardo grew up with a broad incentive to academic studies and cultural and artistic activities. He began his studies as one of the first percussion students in the Guri Project in São José do Rio Preto from 2006 to 2010. During this period, music became a big part of his life with presentations, trips, school bands, and finally the decision to pursue a career in music. In 2011 he joined UNICAMP (the university from Campinas) in the Bachelor of Symphonic Percussion course, and immediately started his involvement in GRUPU (percussion group of Unicamp). At the same time, he was awarded with a scholarship from Project Guri, which ensured an intense and focused routine of classes, festivals, percussive meetings and concerts. Currently Eduardo is studying classical percussion with Professor Herivelto Brandino and popular Vibraphone with Beto Caldas at EMESP and is a percussion teacher at Project Guri in Campinas.
