Link below shows the last contest which happened in the end of 2010.

The afro-sambas were a series of songs made by Vinicius de Moraes and Baden Powell de Aquino back in the 1960s full of African religiosity.

The rhythm is simple, plain, raw, and lyrics act as a mantra.



Astrud Gilberto made a softer and more bossa-like version.

'Berimbau' and 'Consolação' are two iconic afro-sambas. Here both songs are glued and interpreted by some of the greats: Vinícius, Jobim & Toquinho, supported by the discreet and elegant Miucha, Bebel Gilberto's mother.

Cartola (1908-1980) needs a special page, a particular chapter to be written, to be studied, to be appreciated.

Oh, how we miss his songs, his lyrics, his tender voice, his humble manners, his shy smile... Cartola incorporates more than no one, the "Soul of Samba".

Cartola again... "Roses do not speak"

"To the roses I complain
But silly me, roses do not speak
They simply exhale
The fragances taken from you"

When samba people does a party, they do it their way: Pagode.

What was originally something very informal became a commercial hit at least since the 1980s.

Pagode also provided a bridge between the urban middle-class and traditional samba players.

Then the middle-class people themselves decided to be part of the party.

Monobloco, formed mainly by rock musicians, is a good example.

When groups like Monobloco hit the streets it's like an invasion of joy and happiness made by more than half million followers. The old Rio de Janeiro downtown will never be the same.

That's the one, if I had thought about it, I could have interpreted the title, tempo = time of course, I assume this is Portugese not Spanish, but still, what citizen of the US does not know the Mexican Christmas song Feliz Navidad  LOL
feliz = merry = happy

Marcha de Carnaval (Carnival March) is a mix of old styles like polka, mazurka and maxixe with samba. The infectious rhythm fits perfectly the joy of the indoor balls and the bliss of the street unnamed groups that are the real characteristic of Brazilian Carnival.

This one is probably the most known carnival march:


Here the way the Marx Brothers made it:


Now, Tom & Jerry:

From the 1930s until the 1960s, a series of Brasilian movies were made aimed to the Carnival where the 'marchas' or simply 'marchinhas' provided the soundtrack - they were called 'chanchadas'.

In these chanchadas, the plot was light, generally around a theatric troupe or something and the plot and songs were also accompanied by humorous sketches. Since Carnival falls in February or March, the chanchadas were issued in October or November with the additional purpose to take advantage of the 'big summer vacations' of December/January.

Carmen Miranda (here with her sister Aurora) was a star of the first musicals which later were dubbed as chanchadas.

Virginia Lane was a kind of princess of the chanchadas.


However, the queen was really Emilinha Borba.

Modern samba (a blend of traditional samba with bossa nova and other elements) wouldn't be the same without Chico Buarque.

Chico Buarque composed songs (alone or with friends) about every little bit of the Brazilian soul.

Here he teaches musically exactly how to prepare, eat and enjoy the "feijoada", one of our national dishes.

Talking about Samba, it's interesting that an Italian song became a famous standard due to Joao Gilberto interpretation!  
Estate(summer) has been composed in '60 by Bruno Martino & Bruno Brighetti.

Not to count the partnership of Chico Buarque with Italian composer Sergio Bardotti and the albums made by Ennio Morricone dedicated to Buarque's songs. Smile
