Polidoro and his parrots live at Vila Fortaleza. He is the son of Solange and a grandson of Luiz Mendes. The beautiful song is a Santo Daime hymn of Rosana Cristiane Pereira. Polidoro's birds don't sing or fly but they bring much love and joy which is what the hymn is about.

Note: The hymn refers to vovo beija-flor (grandfather humming-bird) in a reference to Padrinho Sebastião, the founder of Mapia which is the largest Santo Daime community in the forest.
