A sunny saturday with sunny music. I have been asked to post
some of that samba I brought home lately and It’s my pleasure
to do so. I am not so fond of them over-produced types of samba,
you know, with violins and huge orchestration.
The beauty lies in simplicity and strong lyrics if I am concerned.
The samba of Bezerra is perfect in that aspect, simple but effective
instrumentation and lirycs that really stand out to my opinion. He sings
about the people’s daily problems including his own. Crooks, thieves
and dopeheads are often subject in his always mocking songs. This
uncut samba with it’s delightful rough edges is like candy for the purist.
6 songs by Bezerra da Silva and 6 by Reyjordão, enjoy.
