Shakespeare in love with SAMBA!


The project Escola de Bamba promotes cultural values among public schools in Rio de Janeiro and the students are invited to create their ‘Samba Enredo’ for the Carnival. The result can be seen at the site http://www.rioeduca.net/blogViews.php?id=3120.

Shakespeare is the champion for this carnival.

NA DIALÉTICA DO AMOR, UM TRAÇO DE SHAKESPEARE NA SAPUCAÍ
“TO BE OR NOT TO BE: THAT IS THE QUESTION”
MINHA ESCOLA VEM CANTAR
PELOS TRAÇOS DO POETA REVELAR.

 

TANTOS PERSONAGENS
NOSSA PRÓPRIA IMAGEM
NESSA VIAGEM SHAKESPEARE A NOS GUIAR
BRILHA O ARTISTA GENIAL
NO PALCO DO MEU CARNAVAL.

 

MISTÉRIOS, FANTASIAS
ALÉM DA NOSSA VÃ FILOSOFIA
AMOR, SENTIMENTO QUE AGITA E ACALMA
LOUCURA QUE INVADE A ALMA.

 

NA LITERATURA COM SEUS VERSOS ENCANTOU
NO TEATRO A PLATÉIA EMOCIONOU
NO CINEMA E TV SUA OBRA EM CARTAZ
SERES ENCANTADOS, DEUSES OU MORTAIS
NAS ENTRELINHAS DA HISTÓRIA
NÃO ESQUECEREMOS JAMAIS
SE A VIDA IMITA A ARTE
NÃO QUERO TRAGÉDIA
VIVO EM COMÉDIA
PRA SORRIR MUITO MAIS
AMAR OU NÃO AMAR: EIS A QUESTÃO
NA PROVA DE FOGO
O AMOR VENCE O JOGO
O FINAL FELIZ É A LIÇÃO

 

UM TRAÇO DE AMOR NA SAPUCAÍ
PODE APLAUDIR
UM SHAKESPEARE ENCANTADO
COM OS CORAÇÕES TOTALMENTE APAIXONADO.

 

(Samba-Enredo Composto pelos Alunos da E.M. PROFESSOR MANOEL MAURÍCIO)

London, London


London, London is one of my favorite songs written by Caetano Veloso .Brazil was in a militar dictatorship for 20 years and Caetano was “invited” to leave the country in the late 60’s.

Another video of London, London when he was younger.

As everybody has already noticed now, the world hasn’t finished. So, I will finish this posting with ‘Terra’ (Earth), definitely a celebration of life and surely my favorite one composed by Caetano Veloso.

Brazilian Music is Great!


Real Brazilian music. The first video shows Almir Sater, one of our most brilliant musicians playing ‘O Ganso’ (The Goose). I love every song he composes, one of my favorites is ‘A Moura’. His site is http://www.almirsaterbrasil.com.br/. The second video shows a group of three musicians. They are sisters and their band is called ‘Choro das Três’. Chorinho is a very popular rhythm created in Brazil, in the video they are playing Alla Turca (Turkish Alla), I also love listening to them playing ‘Odeon’. They have a site, go to http://www.chorodas3.com.br/

Here is a definition I found for ‘Chorinho’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choro

I would like to finish this post with the greatest master ‘Pixinguinha’ playing ‘Carinhoso’.
