Gladiador – Asa de Aguia

Someone on the Delta Force: Black Hawk Down multiplayer game recommended this song to me some years ago and I was always impressed by it. I went on to explore others by this group and liked them as well, but nothing as much as this. The band was one of the main acts in the Carnival of Salvador – Brazil which according to the Guinness Book is the biggest outdoor party in the world. Asa Aguia have sold 5 million records worldwide.

The anthemic and drum-rolled build up gets me every time. It’s just a brilliant song and so well delivered in this 20 year version below. Unfortunately, there is so little available about the band or this song on Google, and I have know idea why. Even their Wikipedia after countless albums, doesn’t say hardly anything. It’s as though they have been almost wiped from history.
