'Mas Que Nada' reggae style.

 

Jorge Ben's Brazilian classic from the sixties is probably one of Brazil's best known songs. Having played this in so many different ways over the years I tried playing it in a reggae style live & it went down very well. That inspired me to record it in my studio. This is the result, hope you enjoy as it was fun to make.
