An original by Phil, this song fuses samba rhythms and whistle blasts with Balkan scales and bass lines. Samba has a long history as a music of resistance, having been developed from a type of dance that originated in Angola and the Congo, finding its way to Brasil through the slave trade. In Brasil, slaves were allowed to keep and play drums, which was forbidden in the US, and thus were able to keep this vibrant tradition alive.

It seems like we've been playing a slightly different structure than the sheet music. We should update it.
