A continuation of obligation

On February 16,2011, I shared the jewels of several artists from Brasil whose pleasures serenade my ears and delight my eyes. I feel compelled to share more individuals from Brasil and other regions.( songs within quotation marks)

Cantores... Chanteuses... Singers

Ivan Lins~"Deixa Eu Dizer"," Depois do Fim" and " Anjo de Mim"

Timbalada~" Beija Flor" and " Toque de Timbaleiro"

Gal Costa~ " Vaca Profana", " India" and " Aquarela do Brasil"

Elza Soares~ "Sei lá Mangueira", " Zirigidum","Malandro", "Pressentimento" and " Che Meraviglia"

Sylvia Telles~" Samba de Uma Nota Só" and "Você e Eu"

Nara Leão~ "Amor Nas Estrelas", " Corcovado" and " Luz Brasileira"

Preta Gil~ "Precisando de Amor" e  

special mention: "Che Meraviglia" is a jaunty ballad sung delicately in chic Italian. Elza Soares, a native of Rio de Janeiro, sings primarily in Portuguese yet greatly enables her voice to other languages. 

Oumou Sangaré~ "Djorolen", "Sigi Kuruni" and "N'Guatu" 

Barrington Levy~" Murderer"

Fela Kuti~ "Shakara" and "Zombie"

Les Nubians~" Makeda" and "Sourire"

Edith Piaf, adorned with the affectionate name of "la Môme"
~ " Padam Padam", " La Vie en Rose" and " Non Je Ne Regrette Rien"

I wish to include even more in the months to come.
