"pelo telefone" chico buarque, donga & pixinguinha 1966

tv music talent competitions were massive in brazil in the 60s, with huge prizes and influence and prestige for the winners. here is a clip from the biggest of these in 1967, the festival mpb (música popular brazileira)

chico buarque & mpb 4, reprising "roda viva" after  being voted the winners.  there are other clips on the gilberto gil & caetano veloso page

fernanda porto e chico buarque "roda viva" 2004

 

 

 

"história de uma gata" (a lady cat's tale) by chico buarque

a strange choice, i knew nothing about this song until i stated YouTubing, & i think the various clips available make for interesting viewing

first, here's a version from a brazilian kids programme, with bebel gilberto's mum miúcha.

bebel is in the red tshirt with her face painted

her uncle chico buarque (miúcha's brother), is behind them , and his daughter sílvia (who later became actress) is the less enthusiatic girl in the blue dress

...and a version by vanessa da mata

...and another by maría victória (with hiccups)

rio is famous for carnaval, and its blocos, or carnaval groups, who rehearse all year round. this bloco is  called "mulheres de chico", or "chico's women".  brazil is a strongly religious country; full of women who love chico buarque & who think he's god, which is useless to argue with. i don't know what the entry requirements are for brazilian women to join "chico's women", but i fear that sadly there will never be a carnaval bloco called "mulheres de denis"

here in december 2007 performing the same song

 

and here in 2009

more of "mulheres de chico". rubbish quality recording, but... here they are again, in their natural habitat

    and here      and here  

women from all over brazil have left messages on their blog, saying things like "i've bought my own instrument and have started practising, how can i join your bloco? they only perform chico buarque songs. to find out more about them, this photo will take you to their website

 

jorge ben joined on stage by caetano veloso & chico buarque for "a banda do zê pretinho chegou"

bad quality sound & images, and judging by caetano's jacket, 1980s bad taste clothes, but worth watching to see jorge, caetano & chico having a good old-fashioned cockney-style knees-up at the end of the song (could you imagine, say, bob dylan, david bowie & van morrrissson doing something like that?)

vieirajack1977

minha filha, minha princesinha tem 5 anos, não sei bem quando começou mas comecei a cantar essa música pra ela enquanto lhe dou banho, isso porque lembro que quando era muito pequeno adorava essa música... E pra minha grata surpresa hoje minha filha também adora essa música, sempre me pede pra cantar, pra explicar a letra.... SALVE CHICO

rosalitafon

Eu sempre choro quando ouço esta música. Representa a minha pequena, linda, inocente filha, vivendo no mundo da fantasia.Derrepente..........a realidade se revelou e ela atravessou o oceano para viver no outro lado do mundo, agora era fatal que o faz de conta terminasse assim, pra lá desse quintal era uma noite que não tem mais fim e eu mãe era uma louca a me perguntar o que essa vida vai fazer de mim?
