Rio de Janeiro - Polyglot Network
Welcome to Rio de Janeiro Polyglot Network!
How could we talk about Rio and do not mention Bossa Nova.
This rhythm has invaded Brazil during the 50's and became popular
in the Uncle Sam's country as well.
Soft music, lovely beach, talked singing and beautiful lyrics,
that was the combination for the success.
One of the most important developers of this rhythm was
with no doubt Antonio Carlos Jobim, most known
simply as Tom Jobim. Tom was that kind of guy
who did not care about success, fame or glory, everything
he wanted to do is sing. And, oh, that was more than enough.
His songs has crossed oceans and reamain alive till now.
How would the world be without Girl From Ipanema?
'Olha que coisa mais linda, mais cheia de graça
é ela menina que vem e que passa
num doce balanço, caminho do mar
Moça do corpo dourado do sol de ipanema
o seu balançado é mais que um poema
é a coisa mais linda, que eu já vi passar'
Thank You Rio, we love you wonderful city.
