Moćčo de Parabenizaćčo ao músico amazonense Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, por concorrer ao prźmio Grammy Latino como "O melhor percussionista do mundo"

Senhor Presidente;
Senhores Deputados

Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, nasceu e foi criado no Amazonas, um autentico caboclo descendente dos índios Maués. Na sua infancia se deleitava ouvindo músicas espirituais e tocadas por sua irmč, enriquecendo cada vez mais a consciencia musical de Gaudencio, que valorizava a cada dia o som que a floresta traduzia, incorporando esses elementos em suas composićões. Além da música Gaudencio teve uma significativa participaćčo no futebol Brasileiro como técnico renomado. Mas foi somente com a sua chegada `a Nova York que ele pôde realizar seu sonho de estudar o que mais gostava: a MÚSICA. Fundador da Sociedade de Violčo das Naćões Unidas em 1970. Fundador da banda de Jazz da Rudolf Steiner School de Nova York. Suas composićões preservam os sons naturais e rítmos peculiares das raizes Afro-Brasileiras e ligadas aos cantosdos índios da regičo Amazônica, mistura uma variedade de estilos, combinando os centenários e primitivos elementos musicais da selva Amazônica, com linguagem contemporČnea do Jazz da cidade de Nova York.
