ILUSTRASAMBA Berlin

ILUSTRASAMBA (Berlin / Brazil)

The First Roots Samba-Pagode Band from Berlin

Original Pagode developed in the start of the 1980s, with the advent of the band Fundo de Quintal and the introduction of new instruments in the classical samba formation. Pagode lyricism also represented a kind of evolution towards the tradition of malicious and ironic samba lyrics, with a much heavier use of slang and underground terms..
