Sambada – Barachinha x Zé Flor, 1 de outubro, 2011


A great sambada in Nazaré between Mestre Barachinha and Mestre Zé Flor, at the time of Leão Mimoso and Estrela Dourada, respectively.  These two previously had a battle of wits and words in the town of Itaquitinga in 2009.

note:  The art I created for this has the wrong date!  That’s what I get for making the art long after I had returned to the United States, where we write dates all backwards.  The real date is October 1, 2011.

Obs:  a arte aqui tem a data!  E foi até minha criação, rsrs.
