The midfielder Ronaldinho, from soccer team Atlético – MG has always had one foot in samba, be it by singing song refrains among teammates or his known sambadinha(a samba dance) he did celebrating after a goal. If he is already known in the soccer fields around the world, off the field it’s time to invest in a new career, full of swing: the composer career. R10(as Ronaldinho is known) already has letters in the voices of the greats of samba and, not satisfied, will debut this year at the Salvador Carnival.
While recording a video to Fantastico, a brazilian tv show, the star showed a side that fans are not accustomed to seeing. In the privacy of his home, in the metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte, he gathered friends for a samba.
In slipper and shorts, Ronaldinho was at home in every way. He quickly settled in, pulled the tantan and started the music. Beside him were the Amigos de Fé (Friends of Faith group), in Belo Horizonte, and Jhama singers, the Tender Trio, and EdCity, who recently recorded the song “Vai na Fé”, with the soccer player participation.
All the musicians present on the samba gig are involved in musical projects with R10. The Amigos de Fé is patronized by the player and has composed a song in honor of the mother of the player. Beside Jhama, Ronaldinho composed music for the Tender Trio, and the singer, pulled up a few verses of the song “Vem pra mim”, a composition of both.
