Berman Berbert (Malvina)
SPB: Your lyrics are very critical about a number of things. What kind of feedback do you get on this? Do you feel you have some influence on the world?
Berman Berbert: Well, in our case, since we’re from Brazil and many political issues here, especially before the election of Bolsonaro, were not well known in the other countries, we feel that we could communicate and kind of integrate part of our foreign public with some of our homeland aspects. We had a lot of feedback in this direction: people becoming aware of the real role of the Operation Car Wash, and things like that, I’s rewarding for us to see the message resounding in other countries.
Brazil now lives in a moment of war, literally, there's a sector of the far right even being trained and funded to "exterminate the left" as they claim. Since the coup d'etad, which overthrew Dilma Roussef, we [experienced] a radical polarization and it, of course, reflects on the feedback we receive here, people from the democratic sector and against the current government tend to love our message. On the other hand, we lost some public in these last years.
