3 Reasons I wish I lived in Brasil…

OK, I know what you’re thinking, but none of them are to do with girls’ arses munching up dental floss bikini bottoms. Brasil is a dope place, and the people there rule,  but it’s all about the music.

Bezerra Da Silva is way too much. A samba singer with proper favela style. A funny old man in a flat cap who’s constantly singing about shagging his neighbours wife, rolling spliffs and having a fridge crammed full of cocaine. He’s like a gangsta version of Ibrahim Ferrer. He died in 2005 but he’s still everyone’s favourite. I spent the best  New Years of my life singing this song on a beach in Florianopolis.

Maria Rita is the shit. I am totally into her album at the moment. Can’t stop listening to it. The perfect music for just about anything.

She’s gone a bit poppy recently, but Particia Marx kind of does it for me too.

And just as a final bonus, check this amazing old TV show I found. A young Particia Marx singing about a naughty-boy-party. Woo. hahaha

And even more amazingly, on Xuxa’s show in ’91

Who knew?
