Throwback Fridays: The Girl From Ipanema
Garota do Ipanema aka The Girl from Ipanema as seen here with Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto.
Bom dia! So I'm heading out to Rio today for Carnaval. I so can't wait. Flamin Hotz 10 just got expedited and arrived today, its Funkeiros e Progresso all fully contracted out, with royalties paid out directly to the artists. Shit is banging, green vinyl, green inside printing, spot gloss and of course some banging funk, out soon at your favorite record store with the full CD compilation out by the end of February. We had to get it expedited so I could take some down to Mr Catra, MC Gringo, Beto da Caixa, Cabide, Sargento and DJ Edgar. Saturday I plan on going to a real baile funk to see Sandrinho play in his home favela Borel. Meanwhile I'm missing Sany Pitbull and Carioca Funk Clube in another part of the cidade. Meanwhile, Saturday day and Sunday day is all about the blocos or street parades. What a tough life.
