Black Orpheus Soundtrack

I must say…This is quite possibly the GREATEST soundtrack ever created! In 1959, French director Marcel Camus delighted the world with Black Orpheus, which is based on the play Orfeu da Conceição by Vinicius de Moraes, which is an adaptation of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. Camus put a modern twist on the myth by setting the film in Rio De Janeiro during Carnaval, and by letting the great Brazilian composers’ Antônio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfá craft this masterpiece of a soundtrack. The film is pretty much….magic. The imagery, the characters, and the music all radiate harmonious vibes. Orfeu even makes the sun rise when he plays his guitar…that’s what the kids say
