22nd April 2015: Elis Regina – Águas de Março

Language – Brazilian Portugese

Translation – March waters

Possibly one of the cheeriest singers ever! I have nothing to say about this song – it’s perfect!

I read that Elis Regina sometimes sang some pretty politically-charged songs, including those which were critical of the dictatorship in Brazil in the 60s / 70s, but due to her absolute fame and popularity she did not suffer the fate (i.e. exile) of many of her contemporaries who did the same thing.  Sadly, she died at the age of 36.
