The website Reinventa Jornalista (Reinvent Journalist) by Brazilian journalist Viviane Rachinski is her quest for a better Brazil. Since she believes that a crucial step for its young democracy is a truly independent media. Not ruled by the dominant minority that basically owns the country and its mass-media.
One of the topics Viviane regularly exposes on her website are colleague Brazilian independent journalists who realize their independence by approaching their journalism in an entrepreneurial way.

O Rappa in Amsterdam

O Rappa is a very popular band from Rio de Janeiro, and that since its start in 1993. It started out from members that joined to play with Caribbean (St Vincent & Grenadines) reggae artist Papa Winnie, who came to Brazil in 1993. Papa Winnie had no band in Brazil, and so gathered individual musicians Nelson Meirelles, Marcelo Lobato, Alexandre Menezes, and Marcelo Yuka to play with him. These stayed together afterwards,  later adding Marcelo Falcão as singer.
