Singer’s lawyer files new lawsuit placing manuscripts proving something he says, he says, in 300 lawsuits defending other artists, he’s never seen anything like it
The songwriter’s lawyer Chico Burque, João Tancredo, will file a new lawsuit against federal deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PL). After suing Jair Bolsonaro’s son for misuse of the song Living wheel in an internet post and getting the judge to respond Monica Ribeiro Teixeira a request for proof that Living wheel it’s really a song written by Chico, Joao Tancredo, representing the artist, decided to use a strategy to streamline the process. “I prefer to close this action and open another one with an urgent injunction, in which a new magistrate will have to immediately analyze this protection”, she explained to Stage🇧🇷 He intends to present the new comedy next Monday, providing all the proofs that, yes, Chico Buarque is the author of Living wheel🇧🇷
Insisting on a first action appeal could delay the trial for up to a year, according to Tancredo. “The fact that Eduardo Bolsonaro is in Qatar would make everything longer,” he says. The new action will be analyzed by another judge, which could also lead to another understanding of the most controversial issue raised in Judge Mônica Ribeiro’s decision: the need to prove Chico Buarque’s paternity of Living wheel🇧🇷 “I have 300 shares in this artistic field and I have never seen anything like it,” says João Tancredo, who works with artists such as Gil, Caetano, Djavan and Mário Lago’s heirs. Even so, he says he will attach to the new action all evidence, including original manuscripts, which Living wheel was made by Chico in 1967 and presented to the public at the III Brazilian Popular Music Festival.
Another fact draws attention to the understanding of the magistrate. Although it did not belong to Chico Buarque, the song features Chico’s voice, which would already be valid as a request to remove the post made by Eduardo Bolsonaro for configuring disrespect and lack of license for the right of interpreter. But the music, in fact, is by Chico. “Because it was a public notation, she didn’t need proof. I tried to explain that to the judge and gave her a chance to rethink what she was doing, but she didn’t want to.” It refers to a declaration embargo, a sort of request for clarification made by the lawyer when he perceives some flaw or contradiction in a judicial decision. Chico, according to João Tancredo, received the news that he had to prove his paternity with disbelief. “But what happened, Tancredo? I didn’t understand anything,” he asked.
While João Tancredo is still in court against Eduardo Bolsonaro, asking for compensation of R$ 48 thousand and the publication of the sentence on the same social network used to advertise the post using the song Living wheel, Chico Buarque continues with his new tour. As he passed through Brasilia on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, the 29th and 30th, he heard people asking him to sing Living wheelwhich he hasn’t done for a long time. The only changes she has made to her recent repertoire have been the inclusion of Very sorryto pay tribute to its interpreter, Gal Costa, showing her image on a big screen, and behind the scenes🇧🇷 The last shows of the year will be on December 8, 9 and 10 in Recife. In 2023 he is back on the road with a four-week stay in Rio, starting January 5, and arrives in São Paulo for another four weeks starting March 2, at the Tokio Marine Hall.
