Song No. 57 — Choro Sim | Djalma Ferreira & Iza Ferreira (1960)

Djalma Ferreira - Drink em São Paulo (1960) a

Choro Sim was introduced in 1960 by Djalma Ferreira on the album Drink em São Paulo featuring Luís Bandeira and chorus. The catchy yet little known song, one of Ferreira’s compositions with wife and singer Iza Ferreira, was recorded about seven times until 1963.

Lila de Oliveira, sister of Dalva de Oliveira, was possibly the first to pick up Choro Sim when she recorded it as the opening track on her debut album A Madrugada na Voz arranged and conducted by Astor Silva.

Rumour has it that the mysterious L’Orchestre Brésilien ‘Ritmo da Bossa’, releasing a fine rendition of Choro Sim in circa 1961 in France, might actually be the alias of Silvio Silveira since he also recorded as Les Rhytmes Brésiliens de Silvio Silveira, Silvio Silveira et Son Grand Orchestre Brésilien and Silvio Silveira y Sus Ritmos Brasileños.
