GENOCÍDIO/GENOCIDE

“Genocídio”, this song by singer Edivan Fulni-ô portrays the disrespect for the Indigenous peoples and the forests that they inhabit. The resistance of Brazil’s Indigenous peoples has remained strong since the arrival of “colonialism”, this disease of the white man that is covered by various layers that harm human life on earth to the point of being suicidal, and particularly harmful to the lives of the Indigenous peoples. The manifesto of artist Edivan Fulni-ô once again raises a war cry and a plea for awareness to those who say they are powerful, without knowing that above us is father Tupã. “Genocídio”, like other songs by Edivan Fulni-ô calls for us to hold up the sky.
