This is a line from a song by a famous singer here. It can't be directly translated, cause it wouldn't make much sense. It would mean something like "praise friendliness" or something like that. People say it on different occasions, though. Maybe the closest expression for you would be, "cheers".

This is a line from a song by a famous singer here. Ha! That is where I heard the phrase! Jorge Ben Jor is my favorite musician in the whole world. In fact, I had the opportunity to meet him last year and he signed an autograph for me and wrote "salve simpatia." Is it a greeting? Would you say it to a friend when you meet them or is it more like a toast that you say before drinking with your friends? Is it old fashioned or do people still say it? Obrigado.

Thanks, MarsMan. I have to admit that I am still a little confused, though.

I don´t think anyone ever says that. At least not in Rio. Its just a catchy phrase that Benjor invented, that people might have used a while ago, when the song came out. I don´t know how else to explain it other than "praising friendliness". That´s cool that he signed you an autograph though. I agree that he is a great musician, and he plays with an amazing band.

Ontem, meu amigo (Brasileiro) me disse que a frase é muito antigo e eu nao deveria dizer a frase. Eu disse ele que eu sou muito velho. Talvez e O.K. lol....

Yeah man, don´t use that line cause you won´t seem cool. If you want to be hip, you gotta say things like: "Eu sou baitola" hhehehe j/k

Funny topic! mauricio was j/k with the baitola stuff. :-D In spite of "qual é, meu irmão?", I would prefer "beleza?", that means "beauty" but it´s used to mean "are you ok?".
