Visitei a casa da Tia Ciata como parte de um trabalho acadêmico sobre Africanidades e foi incrível conhecer a história dessa heroína tão importante para a história das minorias no solo carioca. Fui extremamente bem recebida e sai de lá com sentimento de que todos deveriam conhecer essa mulher incrível.
Caracterização da história do Rio. Carnaval e musica.

O caminho de Ciata na Pequena África é uma experiencia fascinante e incrível, aonde descobrimos a importância de Tia Ciata para o Samba e a Cultura Carioca.
O jeito carioca de passa lá em casa vem da TIA CIATA.
