Through the study of the daily practices of the ambulant workers in the street Voluntários da Patria, at Porto Alegre – Brazil, the aim is to map its sounds expressions in the meeting with other sounds of public space. The suggestion is to an imagetic walk through songs, points and delirium in the center of the city that draw links, social nets, coexistence ways, that insinuate practices of the inhabitants from this region. Laughs, sales and interaction with the researcher build “been there” scenes. You're invited to walk this way to make poetry.
