Não vejo mais esse tipo de tradição hoje em dia. Realmente faz tempo que eu vi um Coreto funcionando como deveria. Nem em cidadezinhas de interior as pessoas tem mais isso. Coreto agora só em filme americano.
Hoje não existem mais bandinhas para tocar. Os casais não namoram mais no coreto. As crianças não brincam mais correndo pela praça. Os jovens que hoje se encontram lá, o fazem para se drogarem. O coreto ainda existe, mas perdeu seu significado.
In the city where I was born, where I used to spend my summer vocations, there was a bandstand at the middle of one of the city squares. There was a place where younger couples had dating, where kids used to play, running around it, some younger used to met there to play music and in the celebration seasons, the square all ornamented, there was even a little band which played there.
I can't see this kind of thing anymore, this traditional thing. Really... Has been a long time that I saw an in use bandstand (at least, how it should be used). Even in the little countryside cities we can't find it. Bandstands only at American movies now, where I believe it still works.
Today there are no more music bands to play. The couples don't date at bandstands anymore. The kids aren't playing and running around it. And younger ones which met there today are for drugs.
The bandstand still exists... But had lost its meaning.
