Mariquinha, Roseane do Nascimento Brito, composes the Samba de Roda Renascer do Qingoma ( Quingoma de Fora) and also acts in clowning with the Polo de Actors by Lauro de Freitas, having debuted with her arrival in the world by the hand of midwife Antônia (Deceased), in Quingoma, Lauro de Freitas, Bahia.

She says that she was still a child. It is a family tradition of the quilombola group. Since her grandmother (Romana Maria da Conceição, deceased) mother (Francisca), Aunt Raquel, cousin Rejane (leader), sister Rose (older), Tias (grandmother's cousins) (Balbina) and Nicinha (deceased), Fermando ( page from the Indian quilombo), and now we're going to pass it on to our children.

She highlights the presentations in the square of Lauro de Freitas invited by the City Hall, very small, had the participation of all. Many turned away because they converted to Protestantism. It saddens to see that people stay away from mixing the concepts, samba and candomblé because of the way they dress. Twist and the Round Skirt. Craziness!

Today there is no rehearsal because of the pandemic. The group's birthday is on St. Joseph's day, 03/19. There is a cassava plantation, a community garden, next to the samba de roda house, on the same land.

She tells how she feels goose bumps when they sing the anthem that the samba component, Pequeno (Marivaldo) composed: “I'm Natural de Qingoma”; the whole group gets emotional.

The routine takes place with rehearsals on Sundays, at the samba house and on the street, alternately, in the afternoon, when there was no performance. The oldest songs are brought here: O mill da Bahia burned, for example, with Mariene de Castro (samba singer).

There is no financial return on cultural activities. Sometimes there is an allowance, which leads us to go after it. I work as a day laborer, sometimes hired by the city hall, general services, class assistant, industrial seamstress.

She received Lauro Criativa with her children Enzo (1 year old) in her arms and Eloisa (3 years old) pulling her by the legs and Wallace (9 years old).

She brought us the message to “persevere and keep the faith because life has hard times but they are fleeting. Strength!"

His Brazilian musicality and bold interpretations won, in addition to a loyal audience, the praise of critics. As an interpreter, Erick worked with the groups Cesta Básica (PB), Mercedes Band (CE) and Grupo Etc and Tal (AL), already with the groups Sine Qua Non (PB) and Zaraquê Trio (RN) recorded albums where he also acted as composer.
