The LomoBloco - the Rhythm of the Carnival!

So how did this Carnival Song come to be? In mid-2010, the Lomography Brazil team had a meeting with the international team - brainstorming for goals and ideas for the incoming year. The Brazilians came up with the "LomoBloco" idea as a joke, but it was too good not to be taken seriously!

… and so one beautiful night, under the starry sky and a few drinks, Filipa’s husband, “Seu Gian do Lorenzo” churned out a sweet melody and recorded it using his cellphone. A good friend wrote some lyrics, and the great Henrique Band laid down the music! Have a listen and let yourself be captivated!

Lyrics:
Today I will go out to click
With a Lomo in my hands I will dance the samba
Will colour the world with my eyes
and watch the carnival of the blocos

With the Holga and the Diana I am more I am
I am a clown, a harlequin, a pierrot

And with the lomo I am
And with the lomo I will
Focus, click and keep your love

The super sampler has 4 frames
Round the fisheye will let you
Lomography is happiness
Surprise, emotion, you will Love it!

The Lubitel is serious stuff
The colorsplash is a sucess!

And with the lomo I am
And with the lomo I will
Focus, click and keep your love
