i reminisce.

I’m not sure what year it was when I fell in love with Brazilian music, especially that pagode-style, ‘samba no quintal’ (backyard) sound, but this is one of the songs that got me diggin’ for more. Something about the unison vocals, the way the cavaquinho and the pandeiro work together, the cuica of course, and in this tune in particular, the tuba (or sousaphone…not sure)!! Here’s one about old times…’Velhos Tempos’ by Os Originais do Samba.
