"Others the country take for choice/And hold the town in scorn/But she has listened to the voice/On city breezes borne" (Amy Levy)
Happy New Year, Cuban!Nevine
Happy New Year from sunny Savannah!! :) Silke
The music gave me goosebumps and made my spine tingle! I've never seen a more beautifully executed and produced music video. It transcends any language barrier. I wasn't expecting such a rich, deep voice to come from Ana Carolina. Thank you, ACIL! I hope you have a wonderful New Year.
THe music of Brasil is the perfect way to kick off the new year! Love Seu Jorge and Ana. Prospero Ano!
Happy music!thanks for your brilliant comment, I didn't realize you also have German.I've been thinking (and writing) about blogging, your blog is one of the reasons I keep at it.
Many thanks for your comments. This song is a cover of Damian Rice's 'The Blower's Daughter' and I was hooked the minute I heard it. I saw the actual concert, too and both Seu Jorge and Ana Carolina are wonderful musicians.Greetings from London.
Nice, Mr. Cuban. Happy New Year from a cold and snowy Willow Manor! ~xx
Wow. What a voice. Thank you for the beautiful music -- once again, you've turned me on to someone I was unaware of! Not sure if I have, yet, but I'm wishing you Happy New Year!
Happy New Year dear friend to you and your family.Love Renee xoxo

*waves* hope all is well on your end. :-Dnice tunes. i'm instantly mesmerized by both of their voices. hers makes me think of sade, although it's noteworthy in its own right.
Hello and Happy New Year!Thanks for sharing your great coffee, sundays, music and writing.
I am still in my lunch break but just wanted to let you know how beautiful London looks with the snowfall from last night and this morning. The streets are paved in white and as I was walking to work today I had my mp3 player on and the music seemed to be in winter mood. Harold Lopez Nusa, Nitin Sawhney, Aziza Mustafa Zadeh and Paco de Lucia were just some of the musicians that put me in a 'snow' mood today. I am enjoying walking with my trekking boots on the slush-slush poodles.Many thanks for your comments.Greetings from - snowy and very cold - London.
Sunday music is nice on Wednesdays too. Very soothing track. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to more of writer collaborations in the future.
Oh this is so beautiful, so transcendent, and yes Ana Carolina's depth and timbre are unexpected delights as is the poignancy in Seu Jorge's notes. Imagine, we have a new year to look forward to being educated and inspired by the ever generous Cuban - it is a Happy New Year indeed..
Wonderful soulful music - it even works with tea on Wednesday afternoon :)Happy New Year, Cuban!
Happy New Year!Por aquí siempre musiquita buena mi bro.
Working from home due to the snow today and the blog is still on holidays. Will be back on Sunday with my reflections, music on my stereo - or mp3 player these days - and my mug of hot coffee, or 'mate', on the table. :-)Thanks for your comments.Greetings from London.
In the 1790's(?) they had a Frost Fair in London when the Thames froze over. I'm starting to wonder if that's going to happen again in 2010.
ooo i love damien rice and this is beautiful
When I pressed play, I told myself that I would continue to do my psychology homework, but Ana's voice did catch my attention. I as well was not expected. The beauty of the whole experience kept not only my ear, by my eyes as well. It's just too bad I didn't understand what was being said.Speaking of bilingualism, you left a comment some time ago saying that I would be self conscious if I was indeed bilingual. I'm glad I checked my spam box and found 'tis comment, because now I'm curious at to why that is.
very soothing and relaxingI even find myself watching it again...
What a beautiful gift at the beginning of a New Year!Thank you very, very much for this one, and for being out there,writing for us. I feel enriched for having met you!My thanks to Willow for giving me the link. A Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
