I don’t know about you but I’ve had an odd and mostly really sad week. There are things going on that are out of anyone’s control and filled with sorrow. I heard the exquisite Michael Price on 6 music this morning, they played a track called Easter which is the kind of song that can make you weep within seconds. I could find it to share however this one is just as beautiful. As someone who’s life is filled with words sometimes an instrumental piece can move you like no other.
Ethereal video from Brazilian cellist and singer Dom La Nena, No Meu Pais, meaning ‘my country’ or ‘myself’. It’s from her newly released album Ela, which came to my attention via an Other Music Review (their mailers are great for looking at new releases). On first listen the songs, sung in Spanish and Portuguese are wistful, meaningful and quite simply beautiful.
