2006 release. Far Out Recordings present Ole Ola - Futebol Bonito!, a percussion driven project inspired by futebol, Brazil's favorite love affair. Ole Ola features explosive Brazilian football songs and slamming remixes, plus crowd recordings from Brazil's largest stadium, as well as classic football commentary. Ole Ola is for both fans of football and Brazilian/world music. Recorded in Rio during the carnival, Ole Ola is a celebration of football and samba and features some of Brazil's finest percussionists on one album: Dom Um Romao, Ivan Conti (Azymuth), Wilson Das Neves (The Ipanemas), Dom Chacal, Cidinho Moreira and members of Imperio Serrano, Rio's most traditional samba school. The vibe is full-on batucadas, funky swinging sambas, traditional football songs plus slamming electronic remixes from Da Lata, Osunlade, Fauna Flash and Zero dB, which all captures the spirit of Brazilian football. To complete the experience and capture the excitement of the stadium, live recordings from inside Rio De Janerio's Maracarna Stadium and Sao Paulo's Morumbi Stadium are included, mixed in with snatches of classic radio commentary. Ole Ola evokes the passion and madness that any football fan has for the game with new versions of classic Brazilian football songs including the theme tune for the Brazilian equivalent of "Match of the Day" ? "Na Cadencia do Samba". Ole Ola combines the most slamming tracks from two previous Grupo Batuque albums Samba De Futebol and Rhythmix to create 71 minutes of non-stop percussive football madness. Featuring recordings made inside the Maracana Stadium in Rio featuring the torcida ("supporters group") of the football team Flamengo. Ole Ola shows why Flamengo's torcida are one of the most feared crowds in Brazil.
