Sacundin Ben Samba is the third album from Brazilian artist Jorge Ben, originally released in 1964. Its songs have been described as "blueprints for much of modern Brazilian pop."[2] The album is stylistically very similar to Ben's debut Samba Esquema Novo, although the rhetoric of protest music, inspired by the likes of João de Vale and Zé Keti and found in such songs as "Não desanima João", "Jeitão de preto velho", and "A princesa e o plebeu" sets it apart from its predecessors.[3]
