Jair Oliveira and the World Cup

I had the good fortune to have the ever sunny Brazilian singer-songwriter Jair Oliveira in the studio last September. Oliveira is the son of Jair Rodriguez, one of Braziil's most beloved musical stars, and famous for his hit "Deixa Isso Pra La" which is arguably the first Brazilian hip hop song. For those of you who follow the blog, you may remember that in September Oliveira sang a charming song he wrote for his baby daughter, called "Showertime."

He also sang a song about soccer, and suggested that I hold it in reserve for the upcoming World Cup in South Africa, which I did. It's a damned good song too.

Let the games begin!
