History and sentiment behind song

The song references the Jangada which is a fishing raft made of six longitudinal logs from the Piuva tree (similar to Balsa). It is held together with wooden pegs and vegetable fibre and constructed using only the simplest of tools. It is used off the beaches of north east Brazil by the ‘Janadeiros’. Jangadas date back thousands of years and are a strong iconic feature of Brazilian folklore. It is not uncommon for poor fisherman to spend days at a time fishing on high seas in these small craft. The chorus of this song implies the pride the singer has though coming from humble means.

The song mentions a loaf, which in humour to the fact that the famous hill in Rio is called “Sugar loaf”.
