CHOR UND ORCHESTER KARL-HEINZ LOGES, Hummel-Hummel Bossa Nova

345-817-2-FAs much as I enjoyed seeing the German team win 7-1 over Brazil in the Football World Cup last night, I´d like to point out how much Germans have been fans of everything Brazilian for a long time.

This funny little song from the early 1960s even manages to mix patriotic feelings for the city of Hamburg with Brazilian Bossa Nova. It seems strange but it does make sense considering that Hamburgers always prided themselves to be very cosmopolitan. Hummel Hummel is a traditional greeting among people from Hamburg.

Karl-Heinz Loges held the position of staff arranger and conductor for Radio Hamburg for many years. He also wrote music for films and was probably best known to the general public for the themes to the the  German TV series “Hallo Nachbar” and “Lotterie”.
