The latest Red Hot charity album, Red Hot + Rio 2, is out now, which is a perfect time for this video of Beirut doing their splendid cover of Caetano Veloso’s “O Leãozinho” at an intimate Red Hot event. The video is prefaced by Zach Condon talking about his travels to Brazil and nerding out about Brazilian records, before he and his bandmates kill the song. Beautiful stuff all around.
(An Easter Egg for Prefix Readers: Prefix publisher Dave Park is in this video at the 5:42 mark. Dude is so major.)
