Querelas do Brasil

  1. 1. ON AQUARELAS & QUERELASQuerelas do Brasil, written by Maurício Tapajós and Aldir Blanc, was firstrecorded by Elis Regina in her 1978 album Transversal do Tempo.The title clearly refers to Aquarela do Brasil, the famous music composedby Ary Barroso. However, the similarity between the two songs does not gofurther.Written in 1939 and extolling the qualities and grandiosity of the Country,Aquarela do Brasil started in music an extremely patriotic movement thatwould be known as samba-exaltação [samba-exaltation].
  2. 2. Querelas do Brasil displays another reality, quite different from that depictedby the boastful verses of Aquarela do Brasil.Tapajós and Blanc draw attention to Brasil’s political, social and culturalmatters, represented by customs, arts, folklore and indigenous influences.The Portuguese word Querela comes from Latin [Querella] and can betranslated into English as Complaint, Grievance, Lament.
