The Sounds & Samba of Brazil

blending Afro Brazilian, Samba Reggae and Carnaval music from Bahia to Rio with sizzling hot percussion rhythms and samba that is electrifying. Olodum is one of Brazil’s most famous Carnaval bands that collaborated with the late Michael Jackson in their native city – Salvador, Bahia, Brazil to create the dynamic song – “They Don’t Care About Us”
Here is the video of the collaboration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNJL6nfu__Q
