Brazil's musical protest

Brazil’s most renowned musicians performed for protestors demanding the resignation of President Michel Temer.

Artists such as Caetano Veloso and Milton Nascimento demanded Temer to stand down as crowds gathered at Copacabana beach.

Brazil is in political turmoil after a recording was uncovered appearing to implicate the president in the payment of hush money to a jailed ally.

It comes one year after former president Dilma Rousseff suffered impeachment for illegally manipulating government accounts.

Rousseff denies the charges, which she says are politically motivated.

Discontent is spreading across the country: “There is massive revulsion; a feeling of revulsion, disgust and anguish. I just don’t know,” said one protester.

Calls for fresh elections have fallen on deaf ears as Temer clings onto power and public fury over political corruption reaches boiling point.
