“Canto De Lemanjá” (Video)

    If you purchased Red Hot + Rio 2 when it dropped this past June, then Mia Doi Todd’s version of “Canto De Lemanjá” should sound familiar. The beyond-soothing tune appeared on the compilation dedicated to the late ’60s Brazilian Tropicália movement. The Afro-Sambas was written by Brazilian songwriters Vinícius de Moraes and Baden Powell.

    Todd apparently liked it so much it appeared on her latest album, Cosmic Ocean Ship. She also lent the tune to director Grace Oh, who’s behind the jaw-dropping visuals below. If it’s cold where you are, too — my hands are freezing here in Raleigh, N.C. — the video might help to warm you up. Watch it below.
