Out of the cover of a book


Brazilian music has been something I’ve really enjoyed for many years now, I was first introduced to it by a compilation put together by David Byrne of Talking Heads fame, called Brazil Classics: Vol.1 Beleza Tropical. That album introduced me to some of the great Tropicalia artists, and some simply gorgeous music. I still love to listen to it. Ever since then, I enjoy hearing about new music from that Portuguese speaking nation. Cibelle is Brazilian, but has moved to England, and often sings in English. No matter, whatever language, she’s a marvel. Here she has chosen a Tom Waits tune.

“Green Grass”

About megstar73

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
