Estudando o Samba is a concept album by Brazilian singer Tom Zé, recorded in 1976.

It was listed by Rolling Stone Brazil as one of the 100 best Brazilian albums in history.[1]

History[edit]

Released in 1976, the album didn't receive much attention from the Brazilian press. Estudando o Samba surveys Brazilian music's largest genre, the samba, while approaching the music with the same creativity Zé had shown with his previous album, "Todos os Olhos".

While doing a research about samba for his musical label Luaka Bop, David Byrne bought this album and reignited Tom Zé's career.[2]
