A famous toadas composer, Chico da Silva, says very perceptively, "In Parintins, people will always love one Ox group and appreciate the other" (interview, 1996).
Or: "We want to play; we are committed not to the theme but rather to the toadas and to the folklore characters.
Together with the lead singer, he establishes a very intense and close communication with the galera, fully integrating it into the Ox group presentation, inviting the singing of the appropriate toadas for both characters and scenes.
The themes of the toadas have undergone a similar transformation.
Despite the publicity in 1996, the toadas remain a regional beat.
