Drama! A heartfelt homage to the romantic and erotic imagery of Brazil with two tipping points: brega (cheesy love songs) and the real testimonies of those in love and those betrayed. Songs that explain lives, lives that are songs.

 

Drama! Rupture! Anxiety! Betrayal! Fornication! This is a heartfelt journey through the romantic and erotic imagery of Brazil with two tipping points: brega (cheesy love songs) and the real testimonies of those in love and those betrayed (mechanics, housewives, parents) The comy songbook, while loyal to brega, feeds off the citizens lives, who in turn learn to relate their woes through bregaist lyrics. Eu vou rifar meu coração (“I’m going to auction my heart”), a title that’s 100% brega) converses with the most outstanding stars of the genre (for the most part unknown in Europe: Nelson Ned, Lindomar Castilho, Wando, Amadeo Batista, etc.) and contrasts their assertions with those of brega fans, or those whose experiences are reflected in the songs. Together they concur on crucial themes like virility, unrequited love, bigamy (as you’ll discover, various individuals with franchise-families appear), female virginity, prostitution and badasses, jealousy and the resulting love crimes… Songs that explain lives, lives that are songs.
