NA BAIXA DO SAPATEIRO

Latest update on 10/05/2010

Artist: Carmen Miranda
Author: Ary Barroso
Label: Odéon
Year: 1938

Means In The Shoemaker's Alley. Barroso's second biggest success after Aquarelo Do Brasil (see there). Better known under it's shorter title Bahia. There's a real Shoemaker's Alley in Salvador Da Bahia. Should have been in film Banana Da Terra if it wasn't for Barroso's excessive fee.
