Barra Grande is a small paradise in the northeast of Brazil and its coastline is described as one of the most beautiful beaches in this country. The village is located on the Maraú peninsula and is a tropical paradise that many people dream of. The calm, crystal clear water, the kilometers of golden sandy beaches and the countless palm trees provide the perfect conditions for relaxing.
This composition written as Bossa Nova describes the paradisiacal tranquility and the ultimate feeling of dreaming away on the beach. All this with a fresh cocktail in hand and the soft murmur of the sea in the background. The flowing solo of the trombone completes the picture.
