"I'm Alive": A Song for Brazil's Rainforests

Get the Song "I'm Alive":


Inspired to protect the rainforests of their native Brazil from further destruction, world-renowned artists Caetano Veloso and Lenine, Criolo, Emicida and Pretinho da Serrinha—along with many other celebrated Brazilian musicians—came together in Rio de Janeiro's Floresta da Tijuca to create a music film and original composition. "I'm Alive: The Floresta da Tijuca Sessions" was conceived of and led by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Andres Levin of Content-OS, who directed and produced the film alongside Paula Lavigne and Fernando Young. The project supports the Rainforest Alliance, which works in partnership with Brazilian nonprofit Imaflora—as well as farmers, forest communities and cattle ranchers—to protect Brazil's magnificent and ecologically fragile natural heritage.

Many thanks to Parque Nacional da Tijuca for supporting the project by offering its landscapes to film. The use of video images was authorized by the federal agency in place, Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation ( ICMBio ). "I'm Alive" Credits »
