Musical Video: double treat

Chimarrão

Since last week I didn't post any musical video (due to time constraints); I will offer you, this week, a double treat: the first video is by the Gaúcho artist Renato Borghetti and the second video is by the group "Afoxé Oyá Alaxé" (from Recife, Pernambuco - Northeast Brazil).

A Brazilian friend (and blogger - Dilermano), suggested that I post the video below by Renato Borghetti. This artist plays a rythm characteristic of the Rio Grande do Sul (South of Brazil) and what can be seen in this video is the life-style of Gaúchos (country people from Rio Grande do Sul), including the Chimarrão (an infusion prepared with yerba mate and hot water - see picture above).
Renato Borghetti interprets a melody entitled "Cumplicidade" (= intimacy, in this case).






This second video below, is an example of the Afoxé genre. Afoxé is an Afro-Brazilian rythm highly connected to Candomblé (an Afro-Brazilian religion) and is usually associated to the States of Pernambuco and Baía (Northeast of Brazil).
In this video, the group "Afoxé Oyá Alaxé" interprets "Oyá é mulher forte" (Oyá is a strong woman). Enjoy!

  3. Well, well,well... I should have born in the USA or England because I really don't like Brazilian music at all. But it's interesting to note that my country has a variety of music styles.
    Max, are you fine? I miss you! I wrote some top ten articles and I want you there!
    kisses!

    "Well, well,well... I should have born in the USA or England because I really don't like Brazilian music at all. But it's interesting to note that my country has a variety of music styles."

    LOL I know what you mean (I feel the same about most of the Portuguese music). Your country is amazingly rich (in every way, but I am referring to music here).

    "Max, are you fine? I miss you! I wrote some top ten articles and I want you there!"

    Gato, I am fine (just a bit busy)! Aww...I am on my way to your blog, man :D! You know I can't resist those top ten ;)!

    Thanks for having dropped by! :D

    Kiss Kiss

    I am so glad you enjoyed it :D! The second one is very specific (candomblé), but the first one is also fantastic!

    Thanks for having dropped, Mark :D!

  11. Hi! Watched them both and loved them! The first one especially! If it wasn't for the cloths and a few of the looks and tunes, I'd swear it was set in the Aussie outback!

    Take Care,
    Peter

  13. Hi Max, the double treat is like getting vanilla ice cream with one more scoop of vanilla ice cream, lol. Renato is really good, I really enjoyed his harmonica playing. Love that kind of music, it is so relaxing to the soul. I also enjoyed the second video, she really reminds me Nina Simone, if you heard about her. My sisters thought I was crazy when I used to play her CDs, lol. Excellent taste girl. Anna :)

    LOL LOL that was a good one LOL...

    He is indeed. This type of music seems to take us back to our essence: so soothing.
    Aaah, Nina Simone: who doesn't know her? My mom is a big fan of hers.
    You have good taste as well, girl :D!

    Anna, thank you so much for your comment :D!

    Cheers
