"El Negro Zumbón" (also known as "Anna") is a baião song written by Armando Trovajoli in 1951 for the film Anna, directed by Alberto Lattuada and starring Silvana Mangano. In the movie, the song is performed in a night club scene by Mangano, though she is lip-syncing; the lyrics are actually sung by Flo Sandon's. After the U.S. release of Anna in 1953, the Brazilian beat of "El Negro Zumbón" influenced American Pop music. It has also been recorded by many Latin American artists
