Tico-tico no fubá marathon

Tico-tico no fubá (literally, a very typical sparrow in cornmeal), chorinho composed by Zequinha de Abreu in 1917, is a virtuoso tour de force, included in the repertoire of fearless musicians that want to prove their talent and their speed.

You will find here:

  • the unforgettable version by the Youth Orchestra of Bahia
  • Duo Siqueira Lima, a Brazilian and an Uruguayan sharing one guitar in a fun – and maybe slightly romantic – way, at the Brazilian Music Institute, in Florida, US.
  • by amazing performer Ney Matogrosso
  • by a very young Paco de Lucia
  • by Ethel Smith, in an organ, in 1944 Bathing Beauty movie
  • and the essential version, by Carmem Miranda, sang in 1947 “Copacabana” movie (the film’s poster was found by the Spanish website Carteles Mix).
