Decorated with full fire fighting equipment, Elielson Silva stands 45 meters above the ground on a ladder pulled out of a red fire truck.
It sits about as tall as the Rio de Janeiro Maracana soccer stadium behind it.
Silva faced a row of apartment buildings filled with Brazilians because of the isolation of the new corona virus.
He plays songs that are known throughout Brazil, but especially those composed in and about Rio.
Conducting a more carefree era, the songs appeal to their hearts: “Brazilian Watercolor,” “Samba Aircraft,” “Extraordinary Cities” and “I Know I Will Love You.”
That includes tourist sites that are now empty – such as the Copacabana beach and the base of Sugarloaf Mountain – and the working class communities of Rocinha and Jacarepagua.
On Sunday, he played in three separate environments, always wearing a heavy fire jacket and helmet despite high temperatures.
