Most tracks that I’ve posted so far (with the exception of Gilberto Gil and Nara Leão) have come from pure forró albums by artists that specialized in the northeastern sound. Djalma Dias was not one of those people. Djama primarily recorded MPB, samba, bossa-pop and Brazilianized American soul. Dono De Casa, Boa Noite (Vidal França) was an unusual song for Djalma. It had a northeast flavor, with other instruments common to Brazilian music but not forró, including cuíca (a drum that sounds like a high pitched, screaming monkey), a more chattery samba’d-up rhythm section and a casual vocal delivery. His records on Som Livre were excellent, and have just recently been reissued on CD in Japan.
