Hello, good evening! Brazil celebrates Carmen Miranda 100th Centennial today. She was born in 9 February 1909. I’m disappointed for not having any album with her unique music to make a tribute. However, it is essential that Loronix makes this tribute.

I like this picture with Carmen Miranda without all that tropical clothes and I hope you also like it. In addition, I’m making available two videos that are really worth checking out. The first video features Carmen Miranda hosted by Ed Wynn in 1949, United States. She has the accompaniment of the legendary O Bando da Lua, and you can notice the presence of Aloysio de Oliveira among O Bando da Lua members. Thanks to Doni Sacramento for this important document.

The second features the last known Carmen Miranda images and impressive scenes of her funeral in Rio de Janeiro, 1955. Thanks to In Memorian website for sharing this film.

I hope our tribute to Carmen Miranda is respectful and appropriate to the importance of this great artist.

Hope uEnjoy!

Sergio Ricardo e Glauber Rocha – Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (1964)

Hi again! Two posts in a single day and both have connections. Although we have music, this is all about a movement among Brazilian filmmakers in the 1950’s and 1960’s known as Cinema Novo. This is the original soundtrack of probably the most famous film from Cinema Novo, featuring Sergio Ricardo and the acclaimed filmmaker Glauber Rocha. There is a very interesting statement about Cinema Novo, “Uma camera na mao e uma ideia na cabeca” (“a camera in the hand and an idea in the had”), which is an adequate description of the movement, which main topics included Brazilian poverty using the Northeast region as setting for the productions. Let’s see.

This is Sergio Ricardo e Glauber Rocha – Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (1964), for Forma, with music by Sergio Ricardo and Glauber Rocha, production by Roberto Quartin and speeches by the actors Othon Bastos and Geraldo Del Rey. Glauber Rocha also wrote the back cover liner notes and he mentions the legendary Grande Otelo singing a Ze Ketti’s Samba Magoa de Sambista at Nelson Pereira dos Santos film “Rio Zona Norte” from 1957. I found it on the excellent Bossa Brasileira, also available below. Don’t miss this video and have a nice Sunday and a very good first 2009 week. Tracks include:

01 – Abertura (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
02 – Manuel e Rosa (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
03 – Sebastião (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
04 – Discurso de Sebastião (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
05 – A Mãe (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
06 – Antônio das Mortes (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
07 – Corisco (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
08 – Lampião (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
09 – São Jorge (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
10 – Monólogo
11 – A Procura (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
12 – Reza de Corisco (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
13 – Perseguição (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
14 – Sertão Vai Virar Mar (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)

Hello, good evening! Let’s play the challenge game with a different setup today. Your mission is to watch two amazing videos and identify who is playing organ on both. If you don’t want to engage the challenge game, don’t miss the videos, they don’t need introductions. By the way, this is a very easy challenge and the first who answers correctly who is playing organ wins a Rapidshare 1-month Premium account.

Hope uEnjoy!


Não consegui os vídeos, mas pelos comentários, seria o Wanderley, de S.P. mais conhecido como Wanderleyzinho, que fazia parte do RC-7, que acompanhava o Roberto Carlos. Nos vídeos também estariam presentes Nestico Aguiar (sax), Maguinho (trumpete) e Raul de Souza (trombone).

Até hoje, não tinha visto um vídeo com o grande Moacyr Silva ao vivo. Some-se a isto o fato dele tocar ao lado da magnífica Elizeth Cardoso. Este  não apareceu no Loronix, mas tem tudo a ver com ele, por isto compartilho com vocês.

Video | Copacabana Palace Movie

This is an amazing collaboration from Loronix official correspondent in Italy, Mr. Gabrielli Brunini, presenting us the whole footage of legendary movie Copacabana Palace, filmed in Rio de Janeiro with the participation of Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luiz Bonfá and Os Cariocas.

Now we have much more than it was available before, including several bikini scenes, the whole beach action and Antonio Carlos Jobim acting, not just as a musician. I made four excerpts with their participation, as follows:

1) Open Credits, with beautiful aerial imagery of Rio de Janeiro and movie credits.

2) Beach Take ONE, with the already known beach images and complements (take a look at Luiz Bonfa with a fish at the post opening).

3) Beach Take TWO, with never seen images.

4) With The Family, showing the boys and their families watching a Samba School parade on TV.

The film is delicious and brings several 1962 images of Rio de Janeiro. Thank you Gabrielli, Loronixers will be pleased with your fantastic collaboration.

Hope uEnjoy!


Não sei se os trechos selecionados pelo Zeca são exatamente os mesmos que consegui no Youtube. Vários outros estão disponíveis lá. Além disto, a trilha sonora do filme foi publicada aqui.
