Song No. 43 — Giramundo | Luiz Carlos Sá (1965)

Pery Ribeiro & Milton Banana Trio - Pery Ribeiro com Milton Banan Trio (1965) a

Giramundo was introduced in late 1965 by Pery Ribeiro as the featured song on his EP with the Milton Banana Trio.

Following Luli’s issue of Baleiro earlier that year, Giramundo was the second song by singer and composer Luiz Carlos Sá to be recorded, and it arguably became his best known.

Giramundo finished at number 33 of Brazil’s biggest hits of 1966, turning out to be Ribeiro’s second most successful single release after Garota de Ipanama in 1963. However, the song enjoyed a short-lived success with only seven recordings in three years.

Selected recordings of Giramundo:

  1. Dear Andreas!
    What a nice song! Can’t explane, why the success wasn’t longer?
    How do we can research, who was in this great “Conjunto Copacabana Bossa “?
    Do you know, that Primo 7 was real supergroup of: Primo (João Antônio Peixoto Primo) ,
    Adão Pinheiro (Adão Nogueira Pinheiro),
    Fernando Maxnuck (Fernando Jorge Semi Maxnuk) ,
    Paulo Nunes , Tranka (Tancredo Marcelino de Olivieira), Portinho (Thelmo Martins Porto) and Pedro Paulo (Pedro Paulo de Siqueira) ?

    1. Well, seven recordings is not all that bad…
      As for Conjunto Copacabana Bossa: there seems no information available except for the name of Paulo Tito as band leader. I suspect, that it’s one of those bands consisting of members being compiled from different record labels, hence, without any credits due to contractual reasons. This would also explain why Conjunto Copacabana Bossa released only one album.
      As for Primo: yes, I know, and I’m also fan of his other projects like Conjunto Flamingo.
      Thanks

  2. Thanks! Just what every guy needs on his birthday…a great song posting from Brazilliance. I love them all, but Primo’s version stands out for me because of the guitar work (and his album cover, my birthday is the 7th)

    You make hangovers fun AD!!
