It’s embolada day.  Watching this video is like being at lyric, my high school hip hop club, and witnessing legendary freestyle battles again… Except the only thing in common is poetic lyricism between two dudes. I’m entranced by the minimal-yet-rich aux percussion.  I also can’t help but get caught up in the swagger of the delivery.  Not to mention the postcard-perfect beach in the background!!! I like to imagine that we are in the sailboat with the black sail in the background and not the tourists at these dudes are pandeiro-ing to.

Everything is cuter when kids do it.

Here is a classic album by hero emboladores, Caju e Castanha – Embolando na Embolada (1980) courtesy of Acervo Origins.
