6 a.m. Brazilian Soul Music

Good morning, positive change seekers!  It’s a great time to learn about music.

I’m learning about the songs of Dorival Caymmi from 1959, at the moment “Caymmi e seu violao,” described by Tom Moon as a “solo voice-and-guitar masterpiece” that celebrates “man’s deep connection to the sea” (153).

Have a listen:


This is Caymmi.

"swaying, simple melodies"
“hanging around the shoreline forever” (Tom Moon)

Secondly, I’m getting into a “comic opera with elaborate underwear,” as described by Tom Moon.

Here’s “Le roi malgre’ lui” by Emmanuel Chabrier.
Next, street music of the 21st century, featuring “Clandestino,” by Manu Chao.
Oh, and how about good ol’ Ray Charles?  Was it something I said?
That lucky ol’ sun is about to come up.  Let’s make it a great day.  Make one positive change.
