Staying in Brazil for now. Here's a track by Linda Baptista, a very popular singer in Brazil and throughout South America in the 1940's and 1950's. Dubbed The Queen Of Radio in the 1940's, Baptista had a large following and an impressive catalog of recordings dating back to the early 1940's and going all the way into the 1960's.
Tonight it's the A-side of a single released by RCA-Victor in Brazil in 1946. Bonde do Caju doesn't fit the Samba mold, but rather another Brazilian music genre, Marcha, which was quite popular for much of the 20th Century in South America.
Very few of these recordings have actually been played on this side of the border, and it's highly doubtful most people will actually know who Linda Baptista was. But during her time she made a big impression on South American record buyers and she was one of a string of popular vocalists coming out of Brazil in the 1940's.
