Latin Roots #62 - World Cup Begins –Latin Roots Brings Us The “Official” (And Not So Official) Music

World Cup Begins –Latin Roots Brings Us The “Official” (And Not So Official) Music

June 12, 2014 - The World Cup begins today in Brazil amidst a bit of controversy concerning FIFA football’s governing body. There is also some musical controversy of a less serious but still contentious type. For Latin Roots today Judy Cantor-Navas is here to explain the difference between the official “theme song” and the official “anthem.” We’ll hear both of them and talk about how the largely Portuguese speaking Brazilian population feels about official music not in their language.

Session Setlist We Are One (Ole Ola) - One Love, One Rhythm - The 2014 FIFA World Cip Official Album - Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull
País do Futebol - País do Futebol - MC Guime, feat. Emicida
