Babalu (Margarita Lecuona) live video. Babalu is an african-Cuban rythym whose first record appears in 1939 and it was recorded by artists like Desi Arnaz, Yma Sumac, Celia Cruz and Dalva de Oliveira (in the Portuguese version). The lyrics speak of a Santeria ritual offered to the Babalu Orisha and is written in a Spanish mixed with creole language. In Brazil, the recording by singer Angela Maria and pianist Waldir Calmon was a great success - perhaps the greatest of Angela's career. This recording is Marcia's tribute to his father, Waldir, and to the beautiful Angela Maria's voice.

This video shows two appearances by Marcia in programs at TVE TV (Rio de Janeiro). They were recorded on VHS tape and, over the years, was in bad shape. It was only possible to save a few bits that have been converted to B&W because of the poor definition of color.

The first program was in October 1985 and made a small article about her work and her personal life. In the part filmed in Gafieira Estudantina, Marcia and her mother sing Sonho Meu (Ivone Lara - Délcio Carvalho) with the Waldir Calmon Orchestra - after the death of pianist, the band was administered by the widow and his two children. The other crooner, Anderson, made an appearance in the chorus. At the beggining, Marcia still sings Madalena (Ivan Lins - Ronaldo de Souza).

The second talk show called 1986 and was recorded in January of that year. Marcia had participated in the same program in the previous year when it was called 1985 - there is even a video on her YouTube channel. The 1986 was presented by Ziraldo and Elizabeth Camarão and, on this day, the theme was the nightlife in Rio de Janeiro and its lady crooners.The guests were: Aurea Martins, Celeste Lassaval, Rose Valentine, Fatima Regina and Marcia Calmon. The songs in this program were: Pela Rua (Dolores Duran - Ribamar), Rio Antigo (Chico Anísio - Nonato Buzar), Demais (Tom Jobim - Aloísio de Oliveira), Dindi (Tom Jobim - Aloísio de Oliveira), Meiga Presença (Paulo Valdez - Octávio de Moraes), Volta (Lupicínio Rodrigues) and É Com Esse Que Eu Vou (Pedro Caetano). At the piano, Anselmo Mazzoni.

There are two Marcia's father videos: in the first one, the pianist Waldir Calmon makes a live performance on a TV program (TV Tupi, 50's). The video is from the personnel file and was originally filmed in B & W and has no sound. For this reason, Marcia edited it with the recording of 1957's music  Samba no Arpége (Waldir Calmon - Luis Bandeira).

The second video is a fragment of the brazilian movie Hoje, o Galo Sou Eu.
