Meninas

I had some unexpected free time last week, so I decided to tackle a song that sneaks into my thoughts from time to time.

Egberto Gismonti is a prolific and versatile composer.  A look through his extensive discography finds him playing rock, jazz, folk, chamber music and more.  His 1991 album Infância is a collection of mellifluous pieces for cello, guitars (or piano) and bass.  The music is sometimes somber, sometimes joyous, and always has a rhythmic flair that is distinctly Brazilian.
