Paulinho Da Viola
Foi um rio que passou em minha vida
Of samba's countless interpreters, there is no equal to Paulinho da Viola. Da Viola has dedicated his life to the art of the samba and also a rhythm called choro (shoh-roh). In a career spanning four decades, Da Viola has written some of Brazil's famous sambas, songs that have become almost anthems, including 'Dança da solidão' and 'Coração leviano'.(www.afropop.org)
