"Lambada", also known as "Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)" or "Llorando Se Fue (Lambada)" (both meaning 'crying [he/she] went away' in Portuguese and Spanish, respectively), is a song recorded by French-Brazilian pop group Kaoma. It featured guest vocals by Brazilian vocalist Loalwa Braz, and was released as the first single from Kaoma's debut album Worldbeat. The video, filmed on Cocos beach in the city of Trancoso, in the state of Bahia, Brazil featured the Brazilian child duo Chico & Roberta.

The song in Portuguese was a mix cover of the 1986 hit "Chorando Se Foi" by Márcia Ferreira (with lyrics translated to Portuguese) and the Cuarteto Continental hit "Llorando Se Fue" (the first upbeat version of the song introducing the accordion), released in 1984 through the Peruvian record label INFOPESA and produced by Alberto Maravi;[1][2] both songs were adapted from the 1981 Bolivian song "Llorando se fue" by Los Kjarkas.

At the time of release, "Lambada" was regarded as the most successful European single in the history of CBS Records, with sales of 1.8 million copies in France and more than 4 million across Europe.[3] Overall, "Lambada" sold 5 million copies worldwide in 1989 alone according to the New York Times.[4] However, the Kaoma group did not credit the original song of Los Kjarkas, turning their version into plagiarism and ending with a lawsuit that would be won by the original authors of the song, the Bolivian group.[5]

Song information[edit]

The lyrics and music of Kaoma's "Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)" were an unauthorized translation of the song "Llorando se fue", originally composed, performed and recorded by the Bolivian Andean folk group Los Kjarkas in 1981.[6][7] The song's lyrics and music had been lawfully registered in 1985 by the founding members of Los Kjarkas – Gonzalo and Ulises Hermosa – in Germany's Music and Authors Society (GEMA), and the unauthorized copy by Kaoma led to a successful 1990 lawsuit by Los Kjarkas against Kaoma's producer Jean-Claude Bonaventure.[6]

According to Gonzalo, Los Kjarkas had based "Llorando Se Fue" on a small, nostalgic Andean melody. Their song was written in a sad and slow Afro-Bolivian Saya rhythm.[8]

Prior to Kaoma's 1989 release of the song, several covers of "Llorando se fue" had been released as dance tracks:

  • 1984 – Cuarteto Continental from the LP Fiesta de Cumbias[9]
  • 1984 – Armonia 10 from the LP El Chinchorro, Vol. 2[10][11]
  • 1984 – Sexteto Internacional
  • 1984 – Tropical Pingüino[12][13]
  • 1984 – Wilkins from the album Una Historia Importante – 15 Grandes Exitos[14]
  • 1985 – Juan "Corazón" Ramón from the album Cada Día Mejor[15]
  • 1985 – Don Medardo y sus Player from the album Lo Mejor del Año, Vol.4[16]
  • 1985 – Vico y su Grupo Karicia from the LP Voz y sentimiento[17][18]
  • 1986 – Márcia Ferreira[19][20][21]
  • 1986 – Los Graduados from the album Flor de un día[22]
  • 1986 – Pastor López from the album Cumbia Universal[23][24]
  • 1987 – Sonora Andacollo from the album Norte Tropical – Lambada[25]
  • 1988 – Los Hermanos Rosario from the album Otra Vez[26]
  • 1988 – Ana Morena from the compilation album Baila Baila Baila, Vol. 2[27][28]
  • 1988 – Tropicalismo Apache from the album Exitos Quemantes
  • 1989 – Los Flamers from the album Gran Reventon Gran, Vol. 5[29][30]

In 1984, an upbeat version of "Llorando Se Fue", introducing the accordion, was released by the Peruvian group Cuarteto Continental, whose arrangements (produced by Alberto Maravi) were later copied by Kaoma.[1][31] The first Portuguese translation and recording of "Llorando Se Fue" – as "Chorando Se Foi" – was released by Brazilian singer Ferreira in 1986 under her third album.[19]

Nowadays, "Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)" is credited to the Hermosa brothers (as authors), Alberto Maravi, Márcia Ferreira and José Ari.[32]

In France, the song was used in a television advertisement for Orangina.[33]

Chart performance[edit]

"Lambada" became a worldwide summer hit, selling over 5 million copies in 1989[4] and was part of the Lambada dance craze. It reached No. 1 in eleven different charts, as well as No. 4 in both the UK Singles Chart and Irish Singles Chart, No. 5 on the Australia ARIA Singles Chart, and in 1990[34] it reached No. 46 in the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of the best known Brazilian songs of all time.

As of 1991, combined sales of the album and the single have reached one million records sold in Italy.[35]

"Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)" was the 37th best-selling single of the United Kingdom during 1989. In France, where it topped the chart for 12 weeks and sold almost two million copies, the single was No. 1 on the year-end list.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Lambada" was filmed on stage on Tago Mago Island in the Mediterranean Sea and on Cocos Beach in the city of Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil. It featured the Brazilian child duo Chico & Roberta as love interests. As a semi-plot, Roberta's father does not want her to hang out with Chico, but Loalwa mends the situation among the three.[36]

Motion picture[edit]

The song was licensed by producer Richard L. Albert for his film The Forbidden Dance after he saw Kaoma perform in a Los Angeles club. Not only was Kaoma's rendition used, but the song was also performed by Kid Creole and the Coconuts on screen, with English lyrics.
