Leandro HBL talking about Favela On Blast on CNN.

Leandro HBL on CNN talking about Favela On Blast. GRES Alegria do Zona Sul is the venue in Cantagalo where Sany Pitbull hosts his baile. Some sweet images from there and some preview material of the film. Thanks to Sany for letting me know!

Cool stuff. Notice the guy @ 5:10, he looks pretty darn stupid, not to mention the horrible dancers behind him. Hopefully he doesn't get interviewed for Favela on Blast.

Awesome! Thank you so much for posting this. Let us know if you hear the film is coming to the US! I'm eager to see it.

Whammer, he does gets interviewed and his story is great.

Mc Colibri was a traditional samba singer with a deep raspy voice that found in baile funk a new breath of life in his career and incorporated in his performances some dramatic latin dance steps.

those dancers are only girls from the audience he asked to stand in for 'the faithful wife' and 'the lover' in the lyrics.

the documentary is amazing! i had a chance to watch with at the premiére in São Paulo; hopefully it'll go round the world as baile funk has.
