Hi folks,
 
Just curious as to what your favourite song(s) are in Portuguese.
 
I like a song called So Com Voce, by The Thievery Corporation. Often there songs are in French, but this is the only one I've spotted so far that's in Portuguese.
 
I also like the David Bowie tracks rewritten by Seu Jorge on the The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou soundtrack.
 
So what are your favourites?

Bebadosamba - Paulinha da Viola

I'm taking Cavaquinho classes at the moe. Does anyone play a brazilian instrument out there?

I can't find the lyrics, but it's definitely more than 3 words
 
I like it more for the style, which is gorgeous. I heard one Thievery Corporation track playing an uber-chic club a few months back, but I would love to find a club that plays more of their tracks.

Sorry, never heard of 'em...

Wow! Good for you.

I wanted to take up piano lessons again, so nothing very Brazilian unfortunately. My creative side has been stifled for a few years, as I used to play piano and cello a decade or so ago. I need to get back into it, more so the piano.

Anyone know any good piano teachers?

Thievery is one awesome outfit. You said hear them live. They both DJ and sometimes do live PA. Re: club that plays good lounge music, don't know but if you find one, let me know.

This dreadlocked cavaco teacher plays almost anything. I will ask him as he kept on trying to explain various aspects of music theory with the piano keys as an example.

I know a piano teacher... but what kind of music? Classical, jazz?....

As you're a music lover... I don't know if you've watched "Calle 54", kind of a documentary/movie with some musicians...

Russell, if you like So Com Voce, by the Thievery Corporation which was sung by Bebel Gilberto (yes, the daughter of Joao Gilberto and Miucha) then you'll probably like Aganjú or Cada Beijo (2 versions of this at least, one of which is a mix by the Thievery Corporation) as well!

Aw, wish I had. I'm not sure if they've ever come here, but I missed Faithless' and other recent tours through being here.

I would just like to find a club that's a bit more modern full stop. A lot of those I've gone to seem stuck in the 80s. All fun 'n stuff, but gets a bit tedious.
 
I'd like a range with something like Thievery, and Jamiroquai, through to dancier music like Faithless, and heavier types like Prodigy and Smashing Pumpkins.
 
It's a shame that no-one's setup a web site where you can enter favourite music and find out which clubs play it.

Thanks Zeca

I fancy a bit of a mix. Both classical and modern. I need a huge revision though, I've not played in more than 15 years, I just really want to get back to music in some way other than just listening

No, not seen that. I'll keep an eye out at Blockbuster. Thanks!

Thanks for the tips Rick, I'll have a hunt for them

Tim Maia - azul da cor do mar
Sepultura - Refuse Resist (though in english)

Quem de nos dois - Ana Carolina

And Ivete Sangalo has the voice of a mulherao on the few songs I've heard her (I'm thinking of acoustic version of 'Full Gas')

A Vida Vai Melhorar, sung by Martinho da Vila, when I really need to believe it will.

A Gente Se Entrega and Bate O by Rio Negro e Solimões, which I learned to dance forro to, heard in the backyard of my friend's house in the country on a warm summer night with the party going until 3a.m. and everybody dropping where they stand--only to continue the next day.
And more forro by Luiz Caldes.

Anything, anytime, anywhere by Margareth Menezes--but notable perhaps in something like Egito, during which she may speak movingly about pride in her Bahian heritage.

Yelé Congo, an oldie by Ara Ketu.

Old  (1940s/50s) sambas with Candeia and Nelson Cavaquinho like Sem Ilusão or Não É Só Você-- (and other older sambistas like Bola Sete) or those of Paulinho da Viola (Na Pagode De Vava) or Bezzera da Silva......

Malandro Sofrador by Ary Barroso.

Most anything the Minister of Culture deigns to sing this coming Wednesday night at the show I'm going to!

...to name a few...and not necessarily in that order....

I LOVE Fulgas by Ivete Sangalo;its the only Brazilian song that I have managed to learn all of the words to!

I also like Claudio Zolli, Ed Motta and O Rappa but I'm not sure of any titles

I usually google the lyrics (name of song "+ letras" works for me) otherwise I wouldn't know any of the words.

Bahiana, I'll certainly be investigating some of the songs you put there, I've got one song by Magareth Menezes, but I'm not really into the party music (or rather the fiancee prohibits me going to any forro concerts/nights while I'm waiting here in London)

There are so many, but a few of my favorites are:

Preciso me Encontrar-Candeia

Capoeira do Brasil/Magalenha-Sergio Mendes version

Chiclete com Banana-Gilberto Gil

Esperando na Janela - Gilberto Gil

Rap Glamurosa - MC Marinho (for purely silly and nostalgic reasons, plus it's great for learning some of the slang  ).

Bahiana,

I'm listening to Rio Negro e Solimões It's sounds quite country! No-one listens to this kind of music in the UK!

Anthony- 
Sertaneja (from the 'sertoes', the inland ranching regions) is, essentially, Brazilian country. Country has a stereotypically poor, uneducated, southern following in the U.S. And in fact,
I don't listen to country in the U.S., U.K. or anywhere else --except that around all my "cowboy" or wanna-be friends from Minas, Rondonia, Mato Grosso, etc, I can't get away from it  and have actually gotten to like some of it. It's fun to dance to!

Rio Negro e Solimoes is my favorite group, very lively. Most of the other duos (they tend to have 'matching' names like Gian & Giovanni , Leandro & Leonardo, Edson & Hudson, as well as Chitaozinho & Xororo, Bruno & Marone or Zeze di Camargo & Luciano, about whom the film Os Dois Filhos do Francisco was made), I find too sappy.

And you wouldn't believe how popular the rodeio is here. The Brazilian-organized bull riding championship, starting again at the end of April, draws thousands of Brazilians (and others) here outside a major northeastern American city famous for its universities.
Remember all the scenes in the storyline for the novela America that were set at the rodeio in Barreiras? Why? Because it's so popular. (One of the big money winners in actuality is from the city of Salvador of all places.) For me this is all just a big circle in life, since I started out as a teenager riding barrel racing horses just outside New York City.

For me it has to be Chico Buarque's 'Vai Passar'. Shirley Valentine said that she wanted to drink the wine in the country where the grape was grown (in her case Greece,) and in a similar way, the first time I heard Vai Passar I simply knew that I had to go to the country where this music was from. I remember the first time very well. I was on my way home from a Brasilian friend's house and I was standing on a platform at Clapham Junction Station. My friend had lent me this Chico Buarque CD and I started listening to it on the platform. This was I think my 'Brasilian Epiphany' moment - it was a defining moment in my history. It might sound like romantic nonsense to some, but it's the truth. Every time I return to Brasil I have a 'ok slightly Rainman' ritual that VP has to be the first song I play as soon as I arrive in the country.
