Os Novos Baianos (The New Bahians) played psychedelic rock blended with regional Brazilian folk styles, heavily influenced by bossa nova maestro João Gilberto
In 1972, after recording Acabou Chorare
(which went on to top Rolling Stone Brazil's list of best Brazilian albums
), the band moved to a far suburb of Rio de Janiero to live communally, play soccer, and work on the album Novos Baianos F.C.
(New Bahians Football Club). In 1973, German television sent music producer Solano Ribeiro to capture their daily life on film. It's around 45 minutes, broken up in six youtube videos: 1 2 3 4 5 6
. No subtitles, but you won't need them too much. The audio is spotty, but it gets better.
