SONGS: Skank

I've chosen this band for today's post because they are one of my favorite Brazilian bands. Skank's songs are always present in nice moments of our lives, they are considered a pop/rock band but usually they mix reggae beats and the result is great. Hope you enjoy!
The band was formed in 1991 in Belo Horizonte, the songs on their first album were very original, they introduced reggae beats to their pop songs, and this mix worked very well. They became famous quite quickly. Their second album in 1994 sold more a million copies. With their third album "Samba Poconé" they were invited to play in many European countries, in South America and US.
In 2010 they recorded a DVD at Mineirão, one of the stadiums that will receive matches during Confederations and World Cup.

They have won the Multishow Brazilian Music Award for best song, best concert, and Samuel Rosa has won as best singer in 2010.
