Pioneer of the new street carnival in Rio de Janeiro,
the Orquestra Voadora (Flying Orchestra) pilots a block of the largest scale, one of the largest in the city. On the wings of percussion and fanfare, the band embarks on their own compositions and great classics of music on a supersonic journey of samba, rock, pop, funk and maracatu, a repertoire that the group takes with them to the shows where it lands in the biggest capitals of the country. and festivals in Europe. The sky is the limit.
The journey is long, 12 years on the track, and without
scales! There was no brigadier heaven, it was very firm on the joystick to make the idea of joining the traditional format of the bands and a modern and eclectic repertoire take off.
A panoramic flight of the group, moved to a lot of joy, the best fuel to occupy and celebrate the street as a democratic space. The square belongs to the people as the sky belongs to the condor, Castro Alves already said. It is from the tracks of Aterro do Flamengo, close to the Santos Dumont airport, that takes off its biggest project: the Bloco da Orquestra Voadora, a spaceship driven by friendship, which gathers more than 300 crew members, including musicians, drummers, acrobats and straddlers. In the most recent procession, in March 2020, more than 200 thousand passengers shared with the band and the members of the Orquestra Voadora workshops the pleasure of playing carnival fueled by the power of so many musicalities.
