Morning Song – País Tropical

August 8, 2016

The Music Department here at MassCommons World Headquarters is woefully deficient in its knowledge of Brazilian music…which is part of what made all the great music in the Rio Olympics opening ceremonies such a pleasure.

Let’s start the week with Jorge Ben Jor’s ridiculously infectious “País Tropical” which sounds like something Chubby Checker (“Twist & Shout”), Richie Valens (“La Bamba”) and Chuck Berry (“Back In The USA”) came up with during a legendary (and, alas, mythical) late night jam session…if they’d been jamming with a Brazilian rhythm section.
