Celebrating Bola Sete (born Djalma de Andrade) (July 16, 1923 – February 14, 1987), a Brazilian guitarist. His name means “Seven Ball” and in the Brazilian version of billiards, the seven ball is the only black ball on the table. Bola got this nickname when he was the only black member of a small jazz group.
