A sad day for Samba

A sad day for samba. One of the icons of samba in Brazil, the singer and composer from Bahia Riachão died on Monday (30), at 98 years of age. In 2016, during a trip to Salvador, Bahia, I had the opportunity to meet Riachão at his home. We spent an entire morning talking about his greatest passions: life, samba, women and their families. Riachão wrote and sang classics like "Cada Macaco no Seu Galho", ruled by Gilberto Gil and "Vá Morar Com o Diabo", re-recorded by Cássia Eller, planned to release an album later this year with the title "Se Deus Quiser Eu Vou Chegar aos 100 anos" ("If God Wants I Will Reach 100 Years”)
