week 440 ~ it’s time I headed to Rio

with 2 comments

it’s time I headed to Rio
I’ve been away for far too long
rekindle the lost spark of song
I found so very long ago
if it’s still waiting I won’t know
until I leave comfortable
behind and give in to the pull
of wanderlust crazy to heed
the call but this is what I need
to drink in choro ‘til I’m full

After my fit of homesickness for Rio yesterday, my poet/blogger friend Kavita suggested I post one of my Brazilian songs. So here is my “Siga em Frente”. The title is Portuguese for “Go Straight Ahead,” and it’s something you hear alot when asking for directions. I wrote it for my Rio taxi driver, who is also a friend and a musician. This recording is from my most recent CD, “Meu Bandolim,” (My Mandolin), recorded w/ my Brazilian musical friends. I’m playing bandolim, and my friends are playing sax, 7-string guitar, and percussion. Enjoy!
