gaivota

This is something I never posted because I heard it a lot. It was originally sung by Amália Rodrigues for a long time and recorded in some versions. It was covered by many artistis.
The reason I'm posting this it's just beacause I was missing this beautiful cover by "Amália Hoje" by the Gift (Sónia Tavares sings) and others.



"If a seagull would bring me the sky of Lisbon, on the drawing I would make, a sky where the look, is a wing that doesn't fly, it fades and falls into the sea.
What a perfect heart would beat in my chest. My love in your hand, the hand where would fit perfectly my heart. ... ... "

Bernardo Sassetti



Genial pianist and genial photographer.
7 days ago, after some stormy weeks, he decided to take pictures on a cliff by the sea at Cascais. It was a shiny afternoon with some heavy clouds smudging the sky as rocks.
They say he fell off the cliff. He was almost 42.

heart and soul

Something strange is hapening lately. I have heard much of new and newest music but I can't find any videoclps. Examples: The beautiful "whishes" from the brand new Beach House's "Bloom" (so new that is coming out ... tomorrow) or some well known songs from the band Spain included in their fresh album. I guess there's a video strike(?)...
Until then, let me dive into some old sounds.



Have a warm week :)

From Miguel's goodbye.

I read on the newspaper today and I saw on TV news later about a ceremony he predicted as "the Plan B". The Plan A was to surpass his disease.
And so some musicians played and sang in this ceremony. One of the songs was the one below, "sung" on piano by Mário Laginha.
The clip below is about a performance with other two great pianists more, Bernardo Sassetti and Pedro Burmester.

Friend. Bigger than the thought, come down that road, come friend. Don't waste your time, because the wind, is also my friend. .In every lands, In all borders, be welcome who comes for good. If there's someone who doesn't want to, bring him with you too. .Those ones... Those who stayed... (everywhere, worldwide) visited me in dreams. Bring another friend too.

The original song:
