João Donato – “A Rã” – (1971)

Yes, João Donato is Brazilian and Brazil isn’t even in Europe. This week I was in Spain – a day in Madrid and three days in Barcelona. I also realize that this song is an example of Bossa Nova, which is Brazilian music. However, while in Barcelona I visited the “Harlem Jazz Club” – which featured live Bossa Nova music, which is more or less Brazilian jazz. I’m still confused as to why they felt they needed to tack on “Harlem,” but whatever. So, for the sake of whatever, I felt I should feature some Bossa Nova for Barcelona.
