Release Date: March 1 2010 (Soundtrack CD) Garrincha is a true Brazilian legend, one of the all-time great footballers, revered to this day. Focusing on his zenith, from 1953 to 1962 – during which time he twice inspired Brazil to World Cup glory – this soundtrack is suitably of the period. With beautiful Ipanemas-esque soulful samba sitting alongside carnival batucada, darker cinematic experimentalism, and playful jazz funk, this collection of Leo Gandelman (Brazilian Groove Band) scores mirrors and celebrates Garrincha’s amazingly fast paced life; at times glorious, at others a car crash. Manuel Francisco dos Santos (Garrincha) remains so popular in Brazil that he is remembered as Joy of the People. Garrincha is Brazilian football, samba the symbol of the nation’s music. ‘Lonely Star’ is the ultimate tribute to both, continuing Far Out’s love affair with Futebol
