It is like Luciano Drumond, an inhabitant of Brumadinho, says: “MECAInhotim means a new beginning for Brumadinho, because it will be the first time in 60 days that people will talk about our city in a positive way. We are very happy and excited about having such festival held here in our city, which has been devastated by bad news lately. We are going to show people that we are alive, that we have so much to give and that they can help us a lot in our new beginning”.
