There is currently no sound file for these lyrics so you can't sing along yet. The staff will play another Portuguese songs. Can you keep up?
VARAL, which means clothes line, was inspired by the
washing songs slaves would entertain themselves with
by chanting and rhythmically slapping the clothes on
the river bank.
Lyrics by Luiz Carlos Bahia
Ê ê ê ah...
Title Song of "VARAL" by Celso Machado
Brazilian's are famous for writing songs with silly, funny lyrics about life. Sometimes they will sound very beautiful because Portugese is a very musical, romantic language.
ITAPARICA means "beautiful stone" in Tupi-Guarany
the indigenous language spoken in the Bahia region.
This is also the name given to an island with beautiful
beaches near Salvador, Bahia which inspired this song.
Lyrics by Luis Carlos Bahia
Em ponta de areia
