ABC Wednesday - O is for O Rappa



O Rappa is one of my favorite Brazilian bands - I'm sure you don't them... - with a great singer and awesome compositions. Their lyrics have a very strong social impact, talking about poverty, hard-working people, slum communities, specially Rio's. They make an amazing mix of rock, reggae, samba, MPB and hip-hop. This song, É Dia de Feira, or I's Fair Day, makes me want to dance and sing along.

I've never heard of them either, but that was good.

Can't say I've ever heard of them but, listening to that piece, I should have done! Who markets them? And why aren't they promoting them worldwide?!

Thanks for visiting The Fairweather Blogger - the Operation was a success, but I'm in agony right now that the morphine has worn off!!
