Yup, Still Summer

Many of you may be familiar with the Buster Poindexter version of this song.  It is considered Soca Music which is an offshoot of Calypso.  This version by Arrow is the original:

Bebel Gilberto: Summer Samba

A Bossa classic performed by two classics Elis Regina and Tom Jobim: Águas de Março

Lest you get confused about the waters of March remember that Brazil is in the southern hemisphere and Summer runs from December to March thus the song is about the rains at the end of summer.
