This lively, syncopated arrangement contains a great melody and easy to teach harmony part. The Portuguese will take some time to learn (I used a combination of Portuguese and English in performance). It is also great for teaching dynamic contrast and the difference between flowing and rhythmic phrases. My youngest training choir loved this piece… it was fun to see their bodies fill with the rhythms of the song during their performance. (Easy-Medium)
