...and that my friends is how I was introduced to Grupo Revelação, and their CD Ao Vivo no Morro. You may not understand a single word of this song but when you hit the chorus at 1:36, you'll wish you could sing along with the rest of the crowd and you just might make up some sounds that fit as best as you can because it is definitely infectious.
Of course, I turned to the Brazilian next to me and asked him what it was we were listening to but he didn't speak English at all. Luckily his friend who was with him did and I made sure to get the name of the group before we parted ways. The band is known for a genre of samba music called pagoda.
Not quite convinced? Here's another. I just love the crowd singing along to each of the chrouses in these songs. Definitely looking forward to 2014.
