In 2014 a team of volunteers from BCfm Radio raised the funds to travel to Brazil during the World Cup to report on the “real Rio”.

We broadcast our daily morning show, The One Love Breakfast, live from our hotel room back to Bristol at local time 3am!

Em 2014 uma equipe voluntária da rádio foi a Brasil durante a Copa do Mundo para falar do “Rio Real” e não do que se vía através da televisão normal, transmitindo ao vivo o programa The One Love Breakfast, desde o quarto do hotel em que estavam alojados

We met some amazing people during our time including Daniel, who runs a guitar orchestra in a favela on the outskirts of Rio. By learning music, these students are steering their lives away from the gun and drug crime that most of their families are involved in.

Uma das pessoas que eles conheceram foi Daniel Sant Anna, professor de música, que criou a Orquestra “Violões Encantados” em uma favela do Rio de Janeiro. Por meio da música, estes estudantes estão crescendo longe da violência e de outras influências que podem prejudicá-los no futuro. 

BCfm pledged to bring a small team of these young people to Bristol in Summer 2016 to meet other young musicians, with the aim of inspiring and encouraging the guitarists to continue down the route of music. 

A Rádio BC FM 93.2 deseja, com essa iniciativa, oferecer a eles um incentivo para que continuem seguindo um bom caminho em suas vidas.

The group have never left Rio, let alone Brazil. We know this will be an enriching experience, not just for the Brazilian young people, but for young Bristolians, for the two cultures to work together and push through the language barrier by making music together. The musicians will also be heading to Leeds and London to really explore the UK and show off their talents to even more people, and we can’t wait for them to arrive!

A Orquestra nunca saiu do Rio de Janeiro, e a ideia é uma experiência muito enriquecedora não só para a banda brasileira mas também para os jovens ingleses, juntando e combinando as duas culturas, organizando uma agenda de apresentações em  Bristol, Leeds e Londres.

BCfm is a registered charity and we rely completely on donations.

We are hoping to raise £5000 to pay for flights for six of these young musicians. 

Please help us reach our goal!

Segundo Jacobo García Fernandez, jovem espanhol que viveu no Brasil por cerca de 2 anos concluindo seu curso de Publicidade iniciado na Universidade de Vigo e vinculado à ONG Opção Brasil e que agora faz parte deste projeto...”O Brasil é um país maravilhoso cheio de talento. Oferecer outras opções para a juventude mais desfavorecida por meio da música é uma oportunidade incrível. Espero que as pessoas entendam o que tentamos fazer e se solidarizem. Isso aqui poderia ser um começo para continuar ajudando e mudando algo de fato”

A meta é arrecadar cerca de £5000, aproximadamente 25,000 reais, para pagar as passagens dos seis músicos e de seu professor. A hospedagem e a alimentação será paga por um sponsor da Orquestra. A rádio também organizará série de eventos em diferentes lugares em Bristol. Já organizaram um em Colston Hall (conocido teatro da cidade) com três shows dos famosos artistas ingleses The Allergies e ThisisDA, além de outros.

Ajúdenos a alcançar a nossa meta. Nestes tempos difíceis solidariedade abre portas-
