He took to the stage on a motorcycle, said goodbye about an hour later and assured that he had a special day. Upon her return to the City of Rock, four years after her first performance at the Parque da Bela Vista, Anitta established herself as one of the biggest pop stars of today and was greeted by a special audience. It’s no exaggeration to say that this was one of the most anticipated shows this summer on the national stages, helping to sell out Rock in Rio Lisboa’s last performance (and the only one in this edition to reach that level).
In her luggage, the Brazilian brought a collection of hits, in the logic of which, if not everything for everyone, then wonderful eclecticism was revealed: from baile funk to reggaeton, from electronic rock hits to “Girls from Rio” – a bridge between house and the world, heritage ” Garota de Ipanema” which changes Portuguese to English and takes on other sound pollutions.
Fans, clearly eager to unconditionally join in the celebration, did not take long to follow the singer and numerous dancers, who, like the musicians (?), saw the reduced protagonist on the side screens and in the back of the stage. – and those who were at a considerable distance from the center of events (a significant part of the 80,000 present) had to resort to them to follow the movements of the artists. The problem was that the director almost always preferred to give priority to the singer, specifically her tail wagging, to the detriment of the team that accompanied her – and which, moreover, was not even represented, except for the guest MC Rebecca in “Combat”. .
The interludes where Anitta changed clothes were the only exception where the dancers performed capoeira, but the singer’s main argument was neither her voice (often leaving her with suspicion of overacting), nor her dancing (without particularly creative choreography), nor the moments when she addressed to the viewers, who repeated “You’re fucked up” and was guaranteed to be delighted with the return.
He also confessed that he was having one of the best days of his life, a strange communication, given such a mechanical presentation, in which there is no place for great spontaneity or memorable moments of communication. Even for big provocations, no matter how the lyrics and sounds of singles like “Vai Malandra” or “Envolver” seem mischievous and obscene. Unless one is shocked by the constant tail-wagging in 2022 (we remember that Madonna is sixty years old) being touted as the show’s biggest highlight, there is little to break in this assortment of urban pop music (yes, there was a shy kiss on the mouth between the singer and dancer) and many derivatives and pasteurized.
From time to time, live instrumentals could be heard, especially close to baile funk, but far from the roughness, sweat and sluggishness with which compatriots Tetine or Bonde do Rolê, among others, who helped to export the sound, had been at the party for a longer time. than ten years. Anitta takes so many spices from the original recipe that she ends up playing it safe, which didn’t stop “Sua Cara”, “Modo Turbo” or the inevitable “Show das Poderosas” (served at the end with an electric guitar cover) from matching and full of the expectations of many, who have been waiting for this concert for months.
Ending the evening at the Mundo Stage, after HMB and Jason Derulo also passed by, Post Malone performed alone and also had a very popular venue to hear songs from the recent “Twelve Carat Toothache”, his room album released in this month. Wearing a Lord of the Rings T-shirt, the American performed to a predominantly teenage audience that never tired of singing many of his themes. As a person surrounded by friends, the singer and rapper drank and smoked, was delighted with the company and was not afraid to go on stage naked.
A shot of words between pre-recorded music, except for occasional moments on an acoustic guitar (which he ended up destroying in an alleged bout of riot to add to the usual expletives), he also engaged in a virtual duet with Ozzy Osbourne with pyrotechnics. and there was no shortage of his inside dives that traversed hip-pop, pop and r&b on topics like “Wow”, “Better Now” or “Insane” for an hour. A shorter runtime than many fans might have expected, but which, as with Anitta, won’t jeopardize a fruitful night for most of them.
Rock Your Street Power Shows
In one of the first performances of the day, Titika became one of the biggest surprises of this edition of the festival. And one of the most brilliant in the show, which also owes a lot to the magnificent group and four dancers, all at the peak of the unstoppable energy of the Angolan woman.
Between the tradition of her homeland and allusions to urban music, the transgender artist was not only charismatic and witty as she spoke to the audience, but also rocked with an exciting mix of kuduro with other rhythmic languages.
Catering for sluggish sequences and others more sped up (with a big advantage of seconds), this was a particularly powerful performance when it used a clash between guitars and percussion, sometimes reminiscent of the rokuduro of the Portuguese-Angolan Throes + The Shine or the de Pongo universe (not coincidentally, Titika collaborated with former Buraka singer Som Sistema’s debut solo album, the recent “Sakidila”).
The breakers “Come e Baza” (dedicated to the Brazilian Pabllo Vittar) and “Chocalho” gained weight and strength compared to the recorded versions and showed their natural territory on stage. The same can be said for “Chão Chão”, which over the past ten years has become the greatest anthem of this journey – and had a strict choreography, with dancers and many spectators leaning at the request of the singer.
In between, the daytime stage host Rock Your Street has taunted homophobia and people “who don’t respect differences” or who haven’t been openly activist since the beginning of her career. At the end, the dancers took to the stage, performing a traditional Angolan dance and drawing the loudest applause of an infectious performance. “I wanted to show a bit of our culture outside of kuduro,” he explained, inviting fans to come on stage and follow his movements. And it will certainly make those who join the concert want to find it again on other stages – from B.Leza to the Músicas do Mundo festival or Arraial Lisboa Pride, there are many places where such a show deserves a place to shine. .
Gathering even more people, a few hours later, Brazilian Johnny Hooker performed at Rock Your Street with a concert that also combined rhythmic shaking and interested attitude. Without hesitation, the Recife-based singer criticized his country’s “murderous government” for “deliberately delaying” the delivery of COVID-19 vaccines. This statement was one of the episodes that received the most applause from the public, mostly from his compatriot, who showed he knew his songs, many of which were about homosexual relationships (and with the right to rainbow flags with Lula da Silva in the forefront). This was the case with “Amor Marginal”, dedicated to André, the artist’s friend who died of COVID-19. “Caetano Veloso” has already paid homage to one of its references, along with David Bowie and Madonna, although those who have seen it gothic may have more in mind the iconography of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” that this song shamelessly blends into to themselves MPB, rock, brega and even flamenco seem to be a spiritual descendant.
On the other hand, Idiotape closed one of the most interesting stages of Rock in Rio Lisbon at a time when many were already thinking about having dinner before preparing to receive Anitta. And that’s why the South Korean trio didn’t get the support their explosive sound deserved, even though they may have gotten a little too close to the edgier side of Daft Punk, Justice and other flagships of maximum French electronica. The power responsible for two elements in the programming and one in the battery still transmuted some while recharging the batteries, but it would have had a different effect after Anitta and Post Malone had said goodbye.
