Baile de Favela

Ejemplo del significado de Baile de Favela en portugués: Esse professor é Baile de Favela!

What is Baile de Favela?

Every Brazilian summer hit leaves its mark – some like Ai Se Eu Te Pego even achieve worldwide success. For that reason, pretty much everybody that has ever listened to Brazilian funk would surely recognize the iconic song Baile de Favela. But what exactly is a baile de favela? Do you know what the Baile de Favela lyrics mean in English? What does it mean when it’s used as an expression? Let’s find out!

‘Favela Funk Party’

Baile de favela — also often called baile funk — refers to a dance party held in a slum (favela). The type of music usually played at that sort of party is funk, which is a big part of the culture in big cities in Brazil, such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. At a baile de favela you can find lots of people partying hard, drinking, twerking and dancing passinho.

Now if you think it’s impossible to experience a baile de favela without actually being in a favela, think again. In Rio, for example, the Baile da Gaiola was held just outside a slum. And in other countries with big Brazilian communities, bailes funk are special events organized every few months that often feature touring MCs, DJs and artists from Brazil.

Baile de Favela Lyrics

Ela veio quente, e hoje eu tô fervendo
Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Quer desafiar, não to entendendo
Mexeu com o R7 vai voltar com a xota ardendo
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
Wants to challenge, I don’t understand it
Messed with R7, she’ll go back with the pussy burning
(vai) Que o Helipa, é baile de favela
Que a Marconi, é baile de favela
E a São Rafael, é baile de favela
E os menor preparado pra foder
com a xota dela
(go) That Helipa is favela funk party
That Marconi is favela funk party
And São Rafael is favela funk party
And the minors are ready to fuck
with her pussy
(vai) Eliza Maria, é baile de favela
Invasão, é baile de favela
E as casinha, é baile de favela
E os menor preparado pra foder com a xota dela
(go) Eliza Maria is favela funk party
Invasion is favela funk party
And the little houses, it’s favela funk party
And the minors are ready to fuck with her pussy
(vai) Que o Hebron, é baile de favela
A bailão, é baile de favela
E na rua 7? Baile de favela!
E os menor preparado pra foder
com a xota dela
(go) That Hebron is favela funk party
The Bailão is favela funk party
And on 7th street? Favela funk party!
And the minors are ready to fuck
with her pussy
(vai) Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Ela veio quente, hoje eu tô fervendo
Quer desafiar, não to entendendo
Mexeu com o R7 vai voltar com a xota ardendo
(go) She came in hot, and today I’m boiling
She came in hot, today I’m boiling
Wants to challenge, I don’t understand it
Messed with R7, she’ll go back with the pussy burning
(vai) Eliza Maria, é baile de favela
Invasão, é baile de favela
E as casinha, é baile de favela
E os menor preparado pra foder
com a xota dela

I have been taking online group classes here for about a month. The entire class is in Portuguese so you learn super fast. The class sizes are small and after each class the teacher evaluates you, so you learn at your own pace. All the teachers I've had are super enthusiastic and encouraging. You're also put in a WhatsApp group to practice and there are extra online activities which are super fun. I both laugh and learn a ton in my classes. I highly recommend this school and I hope someday in the future I can visit in person!

I had a lovely time with the teachers and my fellow students during the classes and the activities the school provided. They push you to speak as much Portuguese as possible during and outside the classes. This made it possible for me to start smal conversation after one week!!! Thank you very much for all the fun and teachable moments! “Eu gosto Rio and Learn!”

Rio & Learn is a one stop shop for learning Portuguese while enjoying the amazing Carioca lifestyle. The teachers and the staffs are very accommodating and they always encourage you to speak and immerse in the language. The immersion classes would take you on amazing journeys to local historic spots of the city while keeping you extra fit. Highly recommend!!!

E ai pessoal! Rio & Learn fue una experiencia maravillosa. En la escuela tuve clases muy interesante que mezclan temas gramaticales con conversación de una forma muy bien planificada. Adicionalmente, las actividades programadas por la escuela en la tarde y los fines de semana son muy divertidas y son una extensión de las clases por lo que se puede continuar practicando portugués en un escenario más pragmático. Complementario a esto, los profesores son muy buenos y tienen mucho ánimo y disposición para enseñar, preocupándose de que el estudiante aprenda ya sea en un entorno individual o grupal; debido a que el profesor que dicta la clase cambia con cierta frecuencia uno tiene la posibilidad de desarrollar más la habilidad de escucha con los diferentes acentos y dinámicas de cada uno. Finalmente, como solo traveler es el lugar ideal para hacer amigos en clase y pasar un buen rato con las actividades de RioLive mientras conoces Rio y practicas el idioma objetivo así que es una excelente combinación. Recomiendo completamente, amé mi experiencia, cree amistades para toda la vida y mejoré mi portugués tal como quería, superó mis expectativas con creces.

I highly recommend Rio and Learn, especially as a solo-traveler. You will make so many friends from the classes and have a lot of support from teachers as well. The group classes are quite great and allow you to maximize your time in the city. I love how you spend the first half of the day focusing on grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary and then afterwards you actually apply it while visiting some of the coolest places in Rio.
