Narcotic Sound astound: sexy Brazilian female singer turns out to be Romanian man!

karaoke-160752_640Narcotic Sound & Christian D are a Romanian music outfit that for some reason sing a lot in Portuguese. They do it pretty well too – when I first heard this I thought this was a sultry, sexy Brazilian woman singing but it turns out to be Christian D (the D is short for Dumitrescu). *

They are basically a duo – Narcotic Sound is Marius Mirică, the composer/arranger/producer. They are better known for club/dance music but this is very “laidback and chill” with some smooth saxaphone. The title, Unidos Pela Musica, means “United by music“.

The musical journey might be a bit Brazilian with the references to samba etc but the videoclip voyage is very Romanian – the obligatory “babes” in the video meet up at Bucharest’s main railway station, Gara de Nord, and catch a train down to the seaside at Constanța, as many Romanians and East Europeans do at this time of the year.

Lyrics taken from http://www.versuri.ro with my quick translation into English

Unidos pela música – United by music
Na vida nos encontrera – Life will bring us together
Meu sentimento com você – My feeling with yours
Tudo vida é  – All life is
O sonido da música – The sound of music
No belos sonhos que me da – In the beautiful dreams it gives me
No mundo se encontrara – In the world you’ll find
Ritmo pra dançar – Rhythm to dance

Unidos pela música – United by music
Vem vem dançar, vem vem dançar – Come, come to dance
Unidos pela músïca – United by music
Dança samba, dança samba – Dance the samba

Here’s another song of theirs – Mamasita, probably their biggest hit – with more Portuguese lyrics in it. My visits to the hairdresser are never like this!

And here’s something in Romanian, Labirint de sentimente, just to prove they can speak it … The lyrics are here.

* If you think Bernardo must be stupid because he can’t tell a man’s voice from a woman’s, please remember that he suffers from tinnitus and that basically all singers sound like a chorus of cicadas.
