"Hi, my name is Iracema Kiliane and I'm the singer of Ilê Ayê. The Ilê Ayê completes now, in 2013, 39 years. We have more than 3500 members, and they are all Black. We insist on having Black people... We are not racists, but we need to fight for our causes and boost the self-esteem of Black people in Brazil and in the world, and know and let them know their role as citizens in society. A kiss for you all, come to Bahia to know Ilê Ayê, sing and dance with me." - Iracema Kiliane
