Ary Barroso wrote “Aquarela do Brasil” in earlywhen he was prevented from leaving his home one braskl night due to a heavy storm. Its title, a reference to watercolor paintingis a clear reference to the rain.
Aquarela do Brasil – Wikipedia
According to the composer, he “felt all the greatness, the value and the wealth of our land”, reliving “the tradition of the national panels”. Initially, he wrote the first chords, which he defined as “vibrant”, and a “plangent of emotions”.
The original beat “sang on [his] imagination, highlighting the sound of the rain, on syncope beats of fantastic tambourins”. According to him, “the rest came naturally, music and lyrics at once”.
He declared to have felt like another person after writing the song. Before being recorded, “Aquarela do Brasil”, initially named “Aquarela brasileira”, was performed by the baritone pt: It was then recorded by pt: Araci Cortesand despite the singer’s huge popularity at the time, the song was not a success, perhaps because the song was not adjusted to her tenor voice. Init was not among the top three songs of that year’s Carnival in Rio.
The president of the jury was Heitor Villa-Lobosand Barroso, offended that his masterpiece was not on the list, ended his relationship with him. The two men would only speak to each other again fifteen years later, when both received the National Order of Merit.
The song only became famous after it was included in Walt Disney ‘s animated film Saludos Amigossung by pt: After that, the song became known not only in Brazil, but worldwide, becoming the first Brazilian song to be played over a million times on American radio.
It was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone as the 12th greatest Brazilian song.
The Barroso family, however, strongly denies these claims, pointing out that he also wrote an anti- Nazi song named “Salada Mista” Mixed saladrecorded by Carmen Miranda in October Vargas, although not a fascist himself, was as sympathetic to such regimes in the early years of his presidency as the European governments of the time. The Department of Press and Propaganda, the official censorship body of the regime, wanted to censor the verse “terra do samba e do pandeiro” “land of samba and the pandeiro “which was seen as being “derogatory” for Brazil’s image.
Barroso persuaded the censors to keep the line. The composer defended his work, saying that these expressions were poetic effects inseparable of the original composition. On the original recording, Alves sung “mulato risoneiro” laughing mulatto instead of “inzoneiro” because he was unable to understand Barroso’s illegible handwriting.
Meu mulato inzoneiro, Vou cantar-te nos meus versos: Brasil, terra boa e gostosa, Da moreninha sestrosa, De olhar indiferente.
O Brasil do meu amor, Terra de Nosso Senhor. Estas fontes murmurantes, Onde eu mato a minha sede, E onde a lua vem brincar. Brazil, my Brazilian Brazil, My intriguing mulattoI will sing you in my verses: Brazil, samba that gives, A swaying that makes you waddle; Brazil of my love, Land of our Lord.
Let the minstrel sing again, Under the melancholic moonlight, All the songs of my love. I want to see this lady walking, Through the halls, dragging Her arry made of lace. Brazil, beautiful and pleasant land, Of the bfasil brunette little girl, With her air of indifference.
Brazil, a greenness that offers For the admiration of the world. Brazil of my love, Land of our Lord. This coconut tree that gives coconuts, Where I tie my hammock In the bright moonlit nights. These murmuring fountains, Where I quench my thirst, And where the moon comes to play. The song has received many successful recordings through the years, being played in many different genres, ranging from its original samba genre to disco.
It is one of the 20 most recorded songs of all time. During the Brazilian military dictatorship, MPB singer Elis Regina performed what is perhaps the darkest version ever of “Aquarela do Brasil”, accompanied by a chorus of men reproducing chants of the Native Brazilians. The song was featured prominently in Terry Gilliam ‘s film Brazilwhich was named after it.
