This music video by Brazilian group, A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade, has gone viral in the last 48 hours, counting almost 3 million hits on You Tube. I discovered the video when Sounds and Colours, an arts and culture magazine with a focus on Latin America, tweeted an article about the group and their sensational video. Of course I couldn't help myself from clicking on the link and watching the entire 6 minute video sitting at my desk. I was so taken with the music, lyrics, and videography, that I was totally oblivious to the fact that my friend was trying to get my attention regarding a work-related task. Cover blown! Oh well. It was totally worth it. See for yourself.
And for you Portuguese speakers and students, here are the beautiful lyrics.
