Os Quindins de Yayá is a song originally written by Ary Barroso, first released in 1941. In Disney media, it was featured in the 1944 animated film, The Three Caballeros, where it gained international fame due to Aurora Miranda's performance as Yaya. The song's lyrics are entirely sung in Portuguese. It is also one of the famous songs sung in Brazil.

Plot

Throughout the song, Donald Duck and José Carioca arrive in the Brazilian city of Baía via train where they encounter Yaya and various citizens of Baía who dance along to the samba beat. The song ends when Donald and José leave the book leading to Baía to open his next present which is a gift from Mexico.
