A project by Brazilian poetry magazine Modo de Usar & Co . [pt] invites poetry lovers from around the world to read out loud their favorite authors and submit the footage  of their readings on YouTube. The project is called “Lend your voice to a dead poet”.
Most of the poems are in Portuguese and Spanish, but there are also other languages represented such as Hebrew  - with Dan Pagis’ poem “Mistakes” – and Slovenian  - “Above the madhouse” by Srečko Kosovel (both with the English translation in the video description).
In the video below  [pt] Ricardo Domeneck, from São Paulo, lends his voice to one of the most famous Brazilian poets, Carlos Drummond de Andrade , and dedicates his reading to Minerva Reynosa  [es], a poet and essayist from Monterrey, Mexico.
