Music and Dictatorship

You will probably say : what? What is the connection between these two topics?

During the military dictatorship that ruled Brazil for 21 years (1964 – 1985), the cultural movement was always fighting against the oppression and the huge censorship that were present on that period. Many songs, artists, singers were sent to exile, arrested and sometimes, tortured. Yes, it was the darkest period of Brazil’s history. The music had a huge impact on Brazilian society, helping people to live throughout those times. Here, we have one famous song of those years. Cálice, by Chico Buarque (famous and important Brazilian singer), is a beautiful song that is remembered until today.

The interesting point of this song is the title: Cálice. In English, “chalice”.
However, in portuguese, the word “cálice” (chalice) sounds the same as “cale-se”, which means “be quiet, shut up”. The lyrics are translated to English!

“Sh*t Cariocas Say”

The “Diário do Rio de Janeiro” (Rio de Janeiro Diary) posted this video trying to show a little bit more of the Carioca Lifestyle (Carioca – people who born in the city of Rio).
This video is awesome and really shows the way that most Cariocas talk, with some famous expressions and slangs.

Beautiful women, beautiful city

Brazilian women. What to say? Nothing. Just admire.

We all know that Rio is well-known for its beauty. Nature, lifestyle and, surely, beautiful, gorgeous women.

And, for our pleasure, the website “Askmen” ( http://www.askmen.com/ ) have just confirmed this fact.

They made a research to find out the cities with the most beautiful women in the world. And, finally, they have now a Top 10. And, can you guess which city got the first place?

R I O !

TOP 10:

1.Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)                                                                                                             2.Milan (Italy)                                                                                                                3.Caracas (Venezuela)                                                                                     4.Copenhaguen (Denmark)                                                                                                     5.Prague (Czech Republic)                                                                                           6.Miami/Los Angeles (USA)                                                                                          7.Stockholm (Sweden)                                                                                                    8.Montreal (Canada)                                                                                                                  9.Tel Aviv (Israel)                                                                                                                            10.Hong Kong (China)

You must have heard the bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” — well, as the song says, the beaches are swarming with sculptural women. The best part is that the nightlife never ceases, so don’t be surprised if you decide to stay longer than expected.

The original girl from Ipanema, Helô Pinheiro, in 1962

 

Women, thanks for making our country even more special.
