    Carnaval, y'all. :eusa_dance: World's biggest party going down in Brasil as we sit.

    Chico Buarque's Vai Passar is as good an infectious samba as any.....



    A samba about samba, the spectacle of a samba parade passing in the street. Crank it up. Crank it WAY up.

    Samba comes from semba, describing both a percussion rhythm and its dance, from Angola. As they repeat the lyrics the percussion transcends into different highlights; the deep surdo one-two heartbeat, the ringing plastic hand drums called tambourims and later the squeaky cuíca.

    The imagery is taken from the street protests against the repressive military government of the 1960s-1980s, During the cultural repression and censorship many artists self-exiled to places they could freely express; Chico Buarque stayed in Brazil writing songs that looked like simple love songs but were allegories for protest such as the one quoted in the second image: (Apesar de você) Amanhá vai ser outro dia! (in spite of you, tomorrow will be a new day).

    One of the comments kinda says it all --- "nothing about this band makes sense--- until you hear them play"
