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.

  2. Highly descriptive blog, I enjoyed that bit.

    • Thanks for kindly reaching out, friend! There won’t be a part 2, however, I do post quite a bit of samba and other Brazilian tunes, as well as music from much of the Americas, Africa and other parts of the world. Please check in from time to time…most of my posts fall under the ‘Aural Delights’ tab at the top of the page. Cheers!
