Bum bum is an informal Portuguese term for hips, derriere, or behind. Taca is a conjugation of the verb tacar which means to throw it back. However, tam tam is just the beat of the music and entirely irrelevant in the luggage. As a result, the song title roughly translates to throwing back the behind to the song’s rhythm.

The Song Review
Bum Bum Tam Tam – the Video
MC Fioti is sitting in the pharaoh’s chair, wearing an overlayer of baroque-silk fabric. His neon-blue hair is a full-on display with jewelry reflecting the light. The background is also very vibrant, with shades of pink and golden/rustic sarcophagus neatly stacked behind him. He waves for the harem to enter the set.
At this point, he is surrounded by three beautiful women wearing provocative genie outfits. The blue and golden chiffon skirts are belted with pearls and tassels that move when the women dance sexually. Their makeup also follows suit with blown-out smoky eyeshadow, a bright lip, and a belly piercing to complete the look.
One of the dancers presents a genie lap to MC Fioti. For a few frames, he admires the antique and then begins to rub it. Lo and behold, it releases a deity that grants him three wishes. The deity stands behind the throne and plays the flute. The deity bust a few moves, which is pretty funny to watch.
The flute has the magical ability to attract women, which MC Fioti tests on the street. As soon as he plays the instrument, the women are captivated by him. They cannot resist his talent and begin jumping on him, breathing loudly. The frame switches back to the pharaoh’s throne. However, this time, there are more dancers with sexualized routines. The women stand next to the singer, aggressively shaking their behinds to get noticed by MC Fioti.
The dancing and drinking continue with multiple frames dominated by women wearing racy genie outfits. You can also tell MC Fioti is captivated by the sexualized energy with his eyes red and constantly looking around, searching for someone next to admire. Eventually, the video comes to a close with MC Fioti looking straight into the camera lens.
