Link original: Donga – A Musica de Donga (1974)
Publicado em: Saturday, February 21, 2009 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! Carnaval has just started in Brazil. We have a big weekend ahead, a 5-day long holiday. Everyone that has the opportunity to travel, do so, leaving their homes today and returning only on the night of Wednesday. I’ll be in Rio de Janeiro, as I use to do. Carnival makes Rio a quiet and empty city, believe it or not. I will follow the example of most music blogs friends of Loronix, showing something with Carnaval flavor. Let’s see.
This is Donga – A Musica de Donga (1974), for the legendary label Marcus Pereira. By definition, this is not a Carnaval album, but a very important document featuring Donga, a musician who is part of Brazilian popular music history. Donga is credited to be the first to record a Samba tune in the year of 1916, a very important song that we know in Brazil by heart, Pelo Telefone, which is the track 10 of this album. Anyway, the whole album is delicious to hear with renowned musicians performing Donga compositions, including Elizeth Cardoso, Almirante, Paulo Tapajos, Dino, Meyra, Altamiro Carrilho, Canhoto and many others.
In a couple of hours I will be updating Loronix with a new interface. If you are reading this text with the interface already updated, I really hope you like it. This new look has many new features that should be implemented in the forthcoming days. It is also faster than the previous one. That’s all friends. I hope you have a nice Carnaval party with your families. Tracks include:
