:: Brazil - Southeast Region | Culture & History

The Brazilian Olympic Committee launched on Monday a video clip with the official theme song for the Olympic Games in Rio in 1016 – it is called “Os Grandes Deuses do Olimpo Visitam o Rio de Janeiro”, which means “The Great Olympian Gods visit Rio”. Written by Arlindo Cruz, Rôge e Arlindo Neto, this samba-funk tells the story about the time the Gods came to Rio and fell in love with the city and danced samba all night long – just like you will when you visit Rio!

The song is played by some of the most important names of Brazilian music, such as Zeca Pagodinho, Mart’nália, Ed Motta, Mr. Catra and Velha Guarda da Portela.

Check out the video and have a taste of what is waiting for you in Rio here:
