Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Saturday, August 15, 2009

One of the reasons I chose Brazil is I was hungy for some good music I missed the heart and soul of mesmorizing rhythms. Well Rio did not dissapoint me in that aspect. The music is the bomb digie!!!!!
Ive gone to two live music venues since I ve been here and the music and the crowds and sounds are electrifying. Drums and rhythms from africa, suaveness and smoothness of hawii (guy playing the ukalalee) and at the same time with a hynotic beat that sets you in a trance all the while every Carioca (Brazilian fro Rio) knows all the words and doin the Samba dance like theres no tomorrow! Thats what its like! The best way i can compae it, is to place called The Apache Cafe that I used to go in Atlanta Georgia for Live music on wednesdays. These clubs in Brazil were like that. Not the same music but the same feel, everybody there was into the music, not there for the showing of their pretty clothes etc. but into the music. On top of that the girl that I went with knew Brazilian music like I know R&B music. It was crazy!!! she told me all the backrounds of each song and all the words.

These people are into their culture and their music!!!! Its deep in their culture! Many of the songs had roots from Bahia salvador Brazil, which is the main port where all the slaves from Africa were first sent. More slaves came here than in the United States and the musical influence,the culture, the foods show it.

I have a feeling that most live music clubs are like this. Thats the reason I came here and I am not dissapointed. And the best places are not in Coppacabana, which is the aea for tourist I mentioned on my last report. It was in a section of the city called Lapa, the clubs is called
 Carioca de gem and Scenarium. Outta sight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
