Safedão is hard to translate. It’s kind of like “player” but dirtier. It's kind of like “pervert" but not quite that dirty. It comes from the word “safado” which means “shameless.” Anyways, the meaning is a bit murky but that’s the name pop music performer Wesley Safedão has chosen. And judging from the manically screaming teenage girls in the audience, they seem to like it. Just when I thought Festa Junina couldn’t be any better, the town of Caruaru surprised me. But why do I keep thinking I was safer in the protests back in São Paulo?
