Baden E Vinicius – Canto de Ossanha (1966)

Baden Powell de Aquino

I am embarrassed to say that I was first introduced to ‘Canto de Ossanha’ by alternative rapsters Jurassic 5. I like their cover a lot, but it’s not a scratch on Baden Powell’s original take that featured as the opening track on Powell and Vinicius de Moraes’ 1966 long player Os Afro-Sambas. As the title suggests, this was ground zero for afro sambas. You can hear the influence it had on the global music scene. Do take some time to watch the YouTube clip – a virtuoso.
