But Nothing: Bab & Rolando 808 with "Mas Que Nada"

Mas Que Nada is the title of our random tune for today. Performed by Bab & Rolando 808, the tune features the voice of respected Brazilian singer Rolando Farias, who now lives in Paris and teamed up with African DJ Alioume Ba to cover this tune. The song was originally written by Brazilian legend Jorge Ben but was made famous by Sergio Mendes and Brazil '66. The song is a celebration of the samba. Mas Que Nada can be found on the compilation CD Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Groove (2003).
