When we created the Caipirinha Libre show the whole point was that it would be different and independent from the Caipirinha Appreciation Society. But a couple of weeks ago we just couldn't help sharing a theme in the sibling shows: the imminent danger of Latin America becoming one big communist bloc.
The ins and outs of U.R.S.A.L. (as the new country is to be called) you will understand once you listen to either episode. It was supposed to be the central theme for the the Caipirinha Appreciation Society, but since the CAS is presented live one day before Caipirinha Libre, we were left with a whole lot of excellent songs (many of which suggested by our listeners while we were on air) which we weren't able to fit into the two-hour broadcast. So there you have it: we just had to repeat the same theme to our portuñol listeners the following day.
We were quite right doing so, as the event and the joke not only holds up two episodes but also allowed for two completely different approaches in each. So the two caipirinhas remained independent after all. Below you will find the widgets for both shows plus some music videos of songs featured therein. And obviously, the video of the event that originated all the fuss over plots to install a socialist Latin America!
