Manu from cousin Matthew’s eyes
As you saw, this weekend’s cover of Mix Magazine brings the smile of talented and beloved Santa Marians actress Manuela do Monte (@manudomonte). He was clicked by his cousin, Mateus Abreu (@mateusabreufotos), during his stay in Santa Maria over the past few months. The good thing about this story is that Mattius’ interest in photography arose when, a few years ago, around 2015, Manuela helped him choose photographs of the material, which is still a fifteen years old. Mangi, for whom he modeled. Years later, she told him that that moment had changed her life. Today he takes pictures in Santa Maria and his work can be seen on Instagram. Regarding the rehearsal he made with his cousin and gave it to Mix magazine, he says: “We had an idea to make pictures that matched Manu. She is simple, funny, full of energy, very nature. And it has always been like this. I have her first memory “. He chose a place that has a green area, but also urban features. Therefore, they went to the area of Boca do Monte. “We chose the tracks in a remote neighborhood to show more drama and highlight that strong woman, then we made several clicks with a moving car on an empty street to show the fun and energetic part!”
Topped the electronic charts
In recent years, Santa Maria has become a national and international reference when it comes to electronic music. Both sides and makers of the genre have gained recognition outside the city. An example was the release of the EP “Domestic Robot” by DJ and producer Basso. The EP was released by the UK label “Let It Out Records” and is already in the worldwide sales rankings of its genre, PsyTrance, ranking sixth among the 100 best-selling albums. The EP includes the tracks “Domestic Robot” and “Don’t Stop”, a collab with Northeast Saturn Six. The EP is available for pre-order on Beatport and for listening to excerpts from tracks on the label and artist’s SoundCloud.
Cruella by Jefferson
More and more I believe that Santa Maria is connected to Brazil and the world. In addition to being the neighbor of the star of Manuela do Monte, the second most popular soap opera in Brazil and Netflix, we have another Santa Marianes who was hired by Disney. Yes, but he is not an actor (yet), but, yes, Instagram’s master Jefferson filters out Araujo. After pumping with filters used by Madonna, Maluma, Anita, Pablo Witter and many other stars (besides billions of people), they have now created the official filter for the film Cruella, which premieres in theaters and Disney this week Was +. The invitation came from Disney to recognize our neighbor’s work and the launch was on his profile Insta @jefaraujo (who has 1 million followers). Let us see what will be the creative person’s next hit.
Music has no boundaries, and the proof of this is that Accordionists and students of music courses at the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM), Fernando लाvila, continue to tour the world through agreement. This time, he was sworn in two international competitions, one in the Czech Republic and one in Latvia. In both, the Czech Accordion online competition 2021 and Concord of Sounds, held virtually between April and May, he was the sole representative of Brazil. In addition to listening and evaluating more than 100 children from countries such as Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia and Vietnam, he also won awards. In the Czech Republic competition, his student from Recife, Rafael Duke, won a silver medal in the Children’s II category, playing two songs from Avila: Argana and Tango Por Carla. Also in the same competition, the Polish Nicodem Sobek won the silver medal in the virtuoso category playing the tango por carla – with the work finishing second in one of the world’s most prestigious Accordion competitions at the end of last year.

There is a tradition of television in the United States that I think is really good and in fact, I do not understand how Brazil does not yet have it. Gather artists from great classics. It has already been 50 years since its release with the reunion of the cast of A Novica Rebelde, with the Patricinhas de Beverly Hills and many others in 20 years of production of the film. It usually takes place in an auditorium program and the actors remember backstage stories and mythological scenes. Because it is a TV phenomenon that spans generations, friends presented the meeting in a special way. It is beautiful to look at, but it is necessary to take a deep breath and do not let good craving turn into sadness or an absurd desire to live the past. It is worth checking out and getting emotional. Highlight for actors reading some scripts. For those who are not in the performing arts, it is clear how talented people are and study the visuals they are going to interpret. I hope Brazil will adopt this idea and promote artists’ meetings. What is not lacking here is the novels, films and series that have been missed.
