An exclamation of surprise or dismay.
Origin: From euphemism for carajo. Borrowed into Portuguese as euphemism for caralho.
Caramba was a Swedish music group. They released one self-titled album in 1981. The album is chiefly notable due to the entire album being recorded in nonsense language. Songs which imitate certain regional styles of music generally imitate the phonemic structure of languages from the appropriate regions. It was produced by Michael B. Tretow, who is primarily famous for engineering ABBA's records, and featured vocals by another Polar Music artist, Ted Gärdestad. While a number of other noted Swedish musicians and singers are rumoured to have taken part in the Caramba recordings, Tretow and Gärdestad are the only ones that have actually been named. The track "Hubba Hubba Zoot Zoot" has been re-issued as part of Michael B. Tretow's 1999 album Greatest Hits, the Ted Gärdestad 4-CD box set Solregn in 2001, and a number of other compilations of 1980s hits and Swedish novelty recordings, and the Caramba album was released on CD in 2011.
