‘Acabou Chorare’ is the second album from Novos Baianos, or ‘New Bahians,’ who formed in Bahia, Brazil, in the 1960s. They are considered to be one of the most important and revolutionary groups in Brazilian music. ‘Acabou Chorare’ — which translates to “No More Crying” — was originally released in 1972 by Som Livre after the success of their first LP ‘É Ferro na Boneca’ in 1970. It charted at No. 1 in a Rolling Stone Brazil’s Top 100 Brazilian Albums Ever chart. “Preta, Pretinha” placed 20th in the same publication’s list of the greatest Brazilian songs of all time. The unique sound of this record is a result of the fusion of samba, MPB, rock ’n’ roll and bossa nova, and strong influences from João Gilberto, who frequently played with the group, and bossa nova legend Gilberto Gil.
