Football and Music : Brazilian Melodies, Péle Singing

Here in Barcelona this friday Clint Eastwood’s movie ‘Invictus’ is getting released. The movie is based on John Carling’s book, Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed a Nation. The book covers Nelson Mandela’s actions during Rugby World Cup, 1995 in South Africa. This made me think about similar other instances where Sports have inspired Arts. While I was looking at several examples, I stumbled upon this very interesting radio programme from ‘RadionNacional de España – 3″, (Channel 3 of Spanish National Radio). Given below is the link to the MP3 of these songs. It has some very interesting and very melodious musical pieces from Brazil. And on Minute 54 (it’s more than an hour long) you can hear the legendary footballer Pele sing a song with the most marvellous brazilian singer of all times, Elis Regina.
