Sergio Mendes “Mas Que Nada”, Baden Powell “Manhã de Carneval”

Brazil is hosting the World Cup in football and it’s time to check out some old classic music videos from Brazil. First a TV-performance from Sergio Mendes and his Brasil ’66 doing “Mas Que Nada”. Introduced as a new Look, a new Sound and a new Approach. They are sophisticated and cool and gives the world a scent of the exotic Brasil – Very 60s. Second, Baden Powell doing “Manhã de Carneval”. A simple yet interesting video. Focus is either on Baden Powell’s face showing his concentrated expression, or on his fingers handling the strings – with a cigarette in his hand! May not be cool today but back then it probably was the height of coolness.
