Before we hear the funky B-Side we have to listen to the sound of brasil music which is very close to the poetic language and its rhythm. With Luiza Maniquim we even got a delicacy from Portugal.

The Trip


Música Popular Brasileira

Música Popular Brasileira (MPB) is the name given today to popular music from Brazil, whereby “pop” can actually be equated with “popular”. The connection to traditional Brazilian music is an important defining feature, although foreign styles such as rock or reggae are also integrated in various currents. For Brazilians, MPB is “nossa música”, “our music”, and is closely linked to their cultural and national self-image. Música Popular Brasileira is heard across all age and social classes.

Os Artistas

Carolina, Carol Bela – Toquinho
Born in São Paulo, Toquinho is probably the most famous Brazilian guitarist of all times. In 1969 he went to Italy with his friend Chico Buarque and toured all over the country. But his greatest success began one year later when he joined singer Vinicius De Moraes, with whom he recorded dozens of records throughout the 1970s.

Disritmia – Martinho Da Vila
Composer who is considered to be one of the main representatives of samba and MPB. He is a prolific songwriter, with hundreds of recorded songs across over 40 solo albums. One of my favorite brazilian Songs “Distritimia” is on “Canta Canta, Minha Gente” from 1973.

I want to be exorcised by the holy water of that endless look.
How nice it is to be photographed but by the retinas of those beautiful eyes…

Disritmia, Martinho Da Vila

He performed as a singer and guitarist the 1960s as well as writing a play that was deemed dangerous by the Brazilian military dictatorship of the time. Buarque, along with several Tropicalist and MPB musicians, was threatened by the Brazilian military government and eventually left Brazil for Italy in 1969.

He was the most important composer of the paulista variation of samba, more acoustic guitar based, more melancholic and bucolic – even though he won several competitions of Carnival marches in Rio.

I can’t stay another minute with you. I’m sorry, love, but it can’t be. I live in Jaçanã, if I miss this train, which now leaves at eleven o’clock.
