Song of the Day # 770 Raul Seixas

More from the slow but steady Brazilian infiltration of this blog which has taken place over the last couple of years. This is from Raul Seixas's mythical 1973 album Krig-Ha Bandolo. Seixas himself is a hugely mystic presence in Brazilian music. It's a common experience for Brazilian audiences to shout 'Toca Raul!' 'Play Raul!' in the middle of gigs, much in the manner of  the 'play Freebird!' calls of American concerts. This also features in one of the most memorable scenes of the wonderful favelas gangster epic City of God.
