In Brazil favela, rap battle is sign of returning normality

This kind of battle was good news for the impoverished, sometimes violent Cidade de Deus favela in Rio de Janeiro: a rap duel in a local bar held for the first time since the pandemic hit early last year. It was a sign of a gradual return to normality after almost two years of restrictions meant to slow the spread of COVID-19, a chance to finally celebrate a bit in the “City of God,” a favela made famous by a movie of the same name. “Many were at home, depressed, and they came here to let it out,” said Fabio de Oliveira, who owns the open-air bar where the contest was held.
