Last night on television here in Brazil we were treated to a historical performance of two of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time – Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil.
Maria was one of them, as was I, and I thought I would share some of her philosophy, as expressed in just a few short tweets.
What a privilege to see Caetano and Gil, a sense of humanity in the midst of the aridity of humanity.
As Caetano sings smiling and with eyes closed we feel his smile in his songs
The music of Caetano passes to Gil and from Gil to Caetano forming in imaginary space the symbol of infinity.
It’s wonderful to see Brazil through Caetano and Gil‘s eyes at a time when this country needs so much love.
[The song] “Walking with Faith” is Gita
The story of Brazil in poetry
Despite Caetano and Gil doing to encores, they did not play the sublime Refazenda. So here it is to finish with.
