Os Cinco Crioulos - Samba... No Duro (1967)

Hello, Good Evening! Let's get back on that Saturday Samba mode today, it has been two weeks with since we made the last one and some friends are crying for it. It was hard for me to make the right choices with Samba, but with the last high quality Samba contribution, things are easy now. Let's introduce the debut LP recorded by a Brazilian Samba group that features several Samba legends.

This is Os Cinco Crioulos - Samba... No Duro (1967), for Odeon, the debut LP of this anthological Samba group from the 60's, featuring well-known Samba interpreters. Samba... No Duro is delicious to hear, really different from the average Samba albums from recent decades. There is no female choir, which is something very interest, seems to me there is only one female choir to several Samba albums, not this one. Tracks include:

Personnel

Élton Medeiros
Anescar do Salgueiro
Nelson Sargento
Jair do Cavaquinho
Mauro Duarte

Mundo Ecantado... e Chica da Silva. Pérolas do Samba Enredo carioca. Antes dessas correrias desenfreadas onde melodia e letra são deixadas de lado em favor do show pra turistas

So amazing! A very focused session & a big push forward for the recording of Samba. Very strong for 1967.
