Brazilian late 80's if not 90's hit
(Buenos Aires, Argentina)
The rythm was from the style of all those brazilian hits like "Lambada" from Kaoma (http://www.youtu.be/watch?v=-9HWS9feqt4&feature=related) and Bellini's Samba de Janeiro (http://youtu.be/RCXRIJudoyM) but less "techno".
The one thing I remember for sure was that the song had this videoclip where the singer (black male, brazilian for sure) was on a boat singing and there were chicks dancing next to him. However the next take was hungry kids and other people in hunger, like showing that, even in the poverty they lived with a cheerful, encouraging spirit.
The whole atmosphere and aesthectics of the videoclip were pointed into warm colors, heat and summer. Aaaand maybe the beach - you know how Brazilians 90's videos are.
Hope I'm not asking for much.
A million thanks for reading this even if you can't figure out which song I'm talking about. :)
