    Years ago, I was living in Paris working as a samba dancer at a club called Plataforma. Back in the day, there were two beautiful Brazilian transvestites who performed music - Les Étoiles. Rolando Faria and Luiz António. I had a cassette tape of them that I played until it disintegrated. I found them recently on YouTube. Luiz António passed away in 2002 but Rolando Faria's still around. Their music is so beautiful. I don't think they wrote this song, but I couldn't track down the composer - which is sad and funny, because it's about a samba composer that everybody loves but he doesn't have a dime in his pocket. *Update: composer = Leci Brandão (thank you Luiza).
