Almirante – Monumento da Música Popular Brasileira
Fontana 1976

Vandaag, beste groevers, krijg je wat zeer oude samba. Voornamelijk
opnamen uit de eerste helft van de vorige eeuw. Hij heette eigenlijk
Henrique Foréis Domingues maar was bekend als Almirante. Een
pionier uit de tijd van Noel Rosa, hij begon zijn carrière in 1928.
Ik ben nog niet zó oud maar kan lekker wegdromen, fantaserend
over hoe het moet zijn geweest in die dagen in Rio de Janeiro.

Today, dear groovers, you’re getting some very old samba. Recordings
from the first half of the previous century. His real name was Henrique
Foréis Domingues but was known as Almirante. A pioneer from the time
of Noel Rosa, he started his career in 1928. I am not thát old myself but
love to listen and dream away, fantasizing about how it must
have been in those days in Rio de Janeiro.

    It is an amazing movie. I think I saw it already 4,5 times and every time I get that feeling of what Brasileans call ‘saudade.’ I suppose that’s what you are experiencing now. Happy you like it Moos.
