Tico Tico no Fubá was composed in 1917 in Brazil by Zequinha de Abreu. ‘Tico tico’ refers to a kind of bird, and ‘Fubá’ is a type of cornmeal – so the title means something like ‘Tico tico on the Cornmeal’. Among the song’s most famous interpreters are Carmen Mirandea (in 1947 film Copacabana), Ray Conniff and Paco de Lucia. The melody also appears on the soundtracks of many films, for example Saludos Amigos (Walt Disney 1942) and und Radio Days (Woody Allen 1987).
Martin Schmitt’s interpretation of this Brazilian golden oldie is in a boogie-ragtime style.
