Recommended Posts

to wake up this forum i think we, brazilians, should introduce our country and culture to the foreigners with topics like this, and others like brazilian sport, brazilian art and etc. Im not a music lover, but i have to agree that brazilian music is the most important part of our culture, with samba, bossa-nova, MPB, choro, pagode, funk, axe, sertanejo, rock, rap, and many others.

So i will start with samba and some cool videos.

There are many kinds of samba, im not an expert, so i just know a few, samba de raiz, samba de breque, samba-enredo, pagode, samba canção, if there is any expert plz explain better for us.

Some nice and very famous singers of samba in Brasil

João Gilberto and Caetano

Tom Jobim, Vinicius e Toquinho

Zeca Pagodinho

Martinho da Vila

Caetano Veloso singing Noel Rosa music

João Nogueira

Bezerra da Silva

[Happy Holidays, everyone]

My contribution to this thread, an amazing interpretation of 'Aquarela do Brasil' (in USA this song is known as 'Brazil' only) performed by Daniela Mercury at TV Globo in 2008.

Enjoy!

ah, about the credits on the end of the video, it's because this song was the last on in this special, so the credits started in the end of the music... (I hate this old fashioned credits Globo uses, but, what can we do?)

This is a very good urban music from Recife: Chico Science and Nação Zumbi. This band make songs mixing traditional rhythm with rock and electronic music.

The guy that sing did die in a carcrash in 1997.

Maracatu Atômico

A cidade

Manguetown

Another great band from Pernambuco is Cordel do Fogo Encantado. This one make songs inspired by the traditions of the Brazil's Northeast

A personal favorite of mine, Roberta Sá, singing "Cicatrizes" live at Vivo Rio on the day of the DVD Recording. I just love Roberta Sá. Her voice is so mesmerizing! *-*

My favourite Brazilian artists are Shakira and Enrique Iglasias! :)

LOL...

In seven years you'll find others like Ricky Martin and Enrique's father called Julio (LOL!!!!!)

The world is still a mistery for some Europeans, even after 500 years of great navigations era

(just kidding)

Talking about Fruit women, I've read somewhere that Melon/Apple/Strawberry Woman (not sure which one of them) feel in love with a Swiss guy and moved to Switzerland! Boy, that's one fruit our salad will be missing.

Soon, we will have other fruts/salads/vegetables woman coming up... Don't worry...

Indeed, did you see the Big Mac woman (Mulher X-tudão)??? A girl with 210 Kilos that is dancer for MC Serginho?

I'm not really sure about how to react to this news, man! I think this trend should end already! XD Have you heard about Provolone Woman? She's named after the appearence of her legs after she ties up her gladiator boots. She ties them really REALLY tight.

Now, if you guys excuse me, I just bought the Original Brazilian Cast Recording (OBzCR? XD) of Spring Awakening (which, as I've pointed befored, was sponsored by Rio 2016)and I intend to spend the next hour enjoying its awesomeness

First of all, Sir Roltel seemed to have REALLY liked Watermelon Woman and all the rest of the fruit women. I love how we are getting bizarre versions of it: I just googled Mulher-Xtudão and wow! Great translation, Danny, by the way. Big Mac Woman sounds awesome :lol: .

But I have bad news: Fruit women is very 2008 right now. Créu had a little revival in October with the whole "Yes we créu" fad, but now it's pretty much gone. "Watermelon Woman", however, is an expression that has gone into our pop culture and I'm pretty sure it'll be remembered for a whole generation, just like "Bootylicious" in America.

I haven't been to the beach this summer to capture what are our lattest summer fads. Not that we need to be in the summer to go to the beach B) But I'll tell you guys as soon as I do it.

Sure they have. Maybe the most original carnaval rhythm since Frevo was actually born in Olinda/Recife. Quite dancing IMO. I guess what makes Carnaval in Pernambuco (and Bahia) so interesting is that it's still a celebration of people. And free of charge B)

Rio's sadly lost part of its magic with so many celebrities and commerce involved. Sometimes it doesn't feel spontaneous, which is a pity. Still beautiful though...

I agree and disagree...

The commercial side of carnaval is sometimes disguting... But, any big/huge event should go commercial to be profitable and to get known internationally.

But I think there are two sides of the Samba Schools parade... The celebrities/advertising/TV side and the favelas/samba schools itself one...

The magic is in the parade itself, I think this still have magic and it is the beautiful side of Rio's carnaval. There are tradition, history and passion on it... Yet...
