My name is Lucio Haeser, I am from Brazil, and today we are going to take a soundwalk along the central streets of Porto Alegre, capital of Rio Grande do Sul, a state that is in the extreme south of the country.
Porto Alegre is the center of a metropolitan region with more than 4 million inhabitants. Here we hear traffic noise, street vendors and people talking. This recording was made on March 6, 2020, when Brazil had not yet realized the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic.
In Brazil, it is said that the year begins in March, right after the summer holidays in the southern hemisphere. The center of Porto Alegre was already noisier, when it really concentrated all business. But here we still have a good sound document of what the city is.
We started walking on Avenida Borges de Medeiros towards Rua da Praia, Voluntários da Pátria and Mercado Público.lucio haeser, 2020.06
