    Hi Guys,

    Was that a Chico Buarque song I heard you two singing?

      Hi Otto, I believe you were referring to a segment of our beginning lesson, “Do you like your job?” when we were singing a line from Chico Buarque’s song entitled “a banda”, right? Indeed, it is one of his most well-known, and one of the original that made him famous. Here’s a youtube link to A Banda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMI3KYXJSaY
