Brazilian Music and Film

Lately, I have been too busy with visitors and with thinking of new business ideas, that I have somewhat lost the ability to describe the world around me. I will try to share something new despite this little setback.

This weekend I went to see the movie Gonzaga, that tells the story of the famous Brazilian singer Luiz Gonzaga and his son, Gonzaguinha. Very nicely made movie, which reminded me of Walk the Line about Jonny Cash. Aside from a great music from Northeast of Brazil and some more modern tunes, it showed how Rio used to be 50 years ago, which was quite cool. I felt even more love for this city than before.
