Music Brightens Spirits

While on our journey of recording and filming musicians in Brazil, someone told us that all we needed to do was "shake a tree, and musicians would fall out like fruit."  That couldn't have been more true. It was one of our last days in Salvador da Bahia when we discovered this band, Sangue Brasileiro.  Wow!  They are super fun and I guarantee you will want to dance to this jam and smile at the screen.  This song, "Samba de Viola" is a true reflection of the Samba music that is the pulse of Brazil.  This performance truly embodies the Playing For Change spirit, and the band's musicianship is incredible!  Enjoy!
Playing For Change Crew: Annie Licata, Monmouth, New Jersey;  Enzo Buono, Los Angeles, California;  Jonathan Walls, Olean, New York;  Mark Johnson, Los Angeles, California;  Raan Williams, Los Angeles, California
