olodum5

A new friend I met while playing tennis the other day told me about a Brazilian music group: Olodum. She said they are a drum group from Bahia and Rio, and are quintessentially Brazilian.

I looked them up. And, as they say here, adoro!

Here’s a video I ran across on YouTube when I was listening to their music. It’s from 2009, and it’s Michael Jackson singing “They Don’t Care About Us,” while dancing in the street with hundreds of extras, and Olodum.

What I like about it, besides the music (adoro), are the street scenes of Rio. It’s a mini-travelogue. Enjoy!
