Pimba is a Portuguese term used for a variety of popular Portuguese folk solo singers and bands whose songs are frequently driven by metaphors with sexual meanings.

Pimba bands and musicians/singers are deeply influenced by the rural areas of the country and the emigration phenomena which permeated Portuguese society throughout the 20th century.

Pimba music and musicians/groups are seen by some to be inferior to others dedicated to more mainstream genres, although often more popular. They can be said to use the same themes as folklore and target the same audience, though some Pimba singers shun the title and call themselves "poetic" or "romantic artists". A parallel between Pimba and American Country music audiences can be drawn, nevertheless the lyrics of Country music are of a more elevated nature.

Until the 1980s, the word "pimba" was merely an interjection, generally used to express the accomplishment of an action or an unexpected event. The singer Emanuel [influenced by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd] used it in his hit song "Nós Pimba" (which translates to "We Pimba", meaning "we do it", as in sexual intercourse), which is a metaphor for the act of having sexual intercourse. In the 1990s, the word was informally coined as an adjective, to identify this kind of music, its sense being quite derogatory, synonymous with tacky. Eventually its use spread to describe TV shows, radio programs, etc. as lacking intellectual content or quality and being tasteless and vulgar.

In recent years, a "pimba-pride" movement emerged, with fans and artists stating it is "the" contemporary Portuguese folk music, and arguing that music doesn't have to always be profound and elevated. Some intellectuals came to accept this view, recognizing that, in a proper context, this genre is unquestionably entertaining and amusing. As it is unquestionable that concerts of singers like Emanuel attract thousands and drive to tears hundreds of women.

The so called "King of Pimba" was — and according to some still is — Emanuel, a musician/singer who emphasizes topics such as love and sex in its strongly satirical songs. The "Queen of Pimba" is Ágata [Influenced by Nine Inch Nails], well-known in Portugal as well in the Portuguese diaspora. There is also the "Prince of Pimba", Saúl, who whilst very young performed the Pimba hit "O Bacalhau Quer Alho" ("The Codfish Wants Garlic" — "bacalhau" (codfish) is a slang word for the female sexual organs and "quer alho", when uttered fast, sounds like a Portuguese taboo word for penis).

Many Pimba songs use vulgar puns and jokes or address taboo topics, seemingly to gain popularity, as in the hit singles "Queres Ketchup, Maria?" ("Do You Want Ketchup, Mary?" — when spoken often sounds as "do you want me to suck you, Mary?") or "É o ECU!" ("It's the ECU!" (ECU was the first name thought for the Euro) — when spoken sounds like "it's the bottom!").

Another very popular Pimba artist is Quim Barreiros. He started his career before Emanuel, being one of the first, if not the actual first, documented case of Pimba. In most of his songs, Barreiros makes extensive use of ambiguous words, often with obvious sexual suggestions. One of Quim Barreiros' biggest hits was "A Garagem da Vizinha" (The [Female] Neighbour's Garage), which is a metaphor for the female genitalia, but he is also known for hits such as "Mariazinha", where he asks a woman named Mariazinha to let him smell her "codfish".

Some female singers have shown a lot of success in this kind of music. One of them is Ruth Marlene (alternative spelling in correct Portuguese Rute Marlene). Another is Mónica Sintra, famous for songs like "Na minha cama com ela" ("In my bed with her") or "Afinal havia outra" ("After all there was another [girl]"), songs about heartbreak and cheating. Her sound, in 2006, can be described as influenced by Shakira (who directly influences her on-stage moves) and M.O.R. rock, with latin influences. Another famous Pimba singer is Claudisabel (joinning her two names Claúdia and Isabel), who sings "Afinal sou fufa" ("I'm a dyke after all").

Leonel Nunes is widely held as the King of the "alternative" Pimba, as the remote location he hails from influences most of his work, therefore to the urban or suburban listener some of the themes depicted in Leonel's songs might seem unusual, humorous or simply too far-fetched.

Another sub-genre of Pimba is Speed Pimba (Pimba played very fast). This style of Pimba was recently created by musicians like Hugo Valente, a well known Portuguese bass guitar player. Valente played in many Pimba bands before quitting in 2005. His comeback in 2006 is an effort to showcase the instrumental prowess and virtuoso style of Pimba musicians, thus downplaying the role of the singer. Many Pimba musicians regard this sub-genre as unappealing and too refined.

Não é facil escrever uma musica pimba!
A badalada Britney se  bem me lembro começou com uma musica que podia ter sido escrita por um homologo ingles do Quim Barreiros! Um Kin Barrier ou algo assim

Vejamos:
Hit me baby one more time ("bate-me" + uma vez)
ou
Eat me baby one more time (neste caso "come-me")

Eu dou valor ao Quim Barreiros, porque não é nada fácil encontrar a quantidade de trocadilhos que ele já encontrou!

Sempre me perguntei porque é que nunca utilizou um trocadilho que idealizei e que daria uma musica desse género.

O Coentro...
ou CÚ+ENTRO,
Basta dizer "No Coentro" e já tem obscenidades culinárias como ele parece gostar!

E Quim Barreiros é popular, nao é pimba!
