Bara Bará Bere Berê (Portuguese pronunciation: [baˈɾa baˈɾa beˈɾe beˈɾe], sometimes written with no diacritics as Bara Bara Bere Bere and sometimes reduced to Bara Bara or Bará Berê) is a popular Brazilian song in Portuguese language. The refrain is a Bahian protect song created by Dorgival Dantas,[1] with folk dance, rhythmic samba and merengue influences.[2] The song has been subject to various interpretations by a great number of Brazilian artists, and various lyrics and additional music added to the original Dorgival Dantas version.

Before becoming a single in Brazil and internationally in 2012, "Bara Bara Bere Berê" had already been playing since 2008, in various shows and on Brazilian radio stations, with various sertanejo artist interpretations. Best-known versions include those by Aviões do Forró, Cristiano Araújo and Léo Rodriguez.

In Brazil, the first release as a digital single was that of Michel Teló. On 24 July 2012, Teló said in an interview with the television program Encontro com Fátima Bernardes that the launch was ready with new dance moves and would be available in Europe on 13 July 2012. The European releases included an EP with five different tracks of the song, the original radio version, another by Mister Jam and three by DJ Class.

The European and world charts have seen versions by Alex Ferrari in France, Belgium, Russia, Spain and Switzerland, by Leo Rodríguez in the Netherlands and the Dutch-language market in Belgium and a version by Michel Teló in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.

The Brazilian singer Alex Ferrari registered it with Music Edition: Jeff Records and recorded it in March 2011 and interpreted it on many occasions in his home country. His version gained most popularity though on European night venues. As his version made rounds online, it was erroneously attributed at times to Michel Teló, although it was eventually proven as being a version recorded by Alex Ferrari himself.

A studio version he produced was released in August 2012 by EMI Music France, having charted in France, where it peaked at #1 as at week-ended 19 August 2012,[3] making Ferrari the third Brazilian act to top the French Singles Chart in 2012, after Michel Teló and Gusttavo Lima.
