Music for your Monday!

For those of you curious about the music here in Brazil, I think I'll start posting songs once a week...hence the "Music for your Monday" title.

Brazil's variety of music is just as diverse, if not more so, than the range of music we have in the US. There is of course Samba, Bossa Nova, Sertaneja, Pagode, Funk, Capoeira, and Reggae, just to name a few.

Today's song comes from the Sertaneja genre. Sertaneja is essentially the Brazilian equivalent of country music. In the past few years, the popularity of Sertaneja music has grown tremendously. Duplas Sertanejas (Country Duos) are all the rage right now! (Bruno e Marrone, Jorge e Mateus, Zezé di Camargo e Luciano, Fernando e Sorocaba...)

If you ask around about Sertaneja, people either love it, or they hate it. Just like our own country music. If you ask me... I love it!

Michel Teló has made a name for himself as a solo artist. Here's one of his songs I just can't seem to get out of my head! :

 Se Eu Te Pego- Michel Teló

Hope you liked it!
Come back next Monday for some more MÚSICA!
