Σαν σήμερα, 29 Μαρτίου 1943 γεννήθηκε στο Salvador της Βραζιλίας η Astrud Evangelina Weinert, περισσότερο γνωστή ως Astrud Gilberto, από τις εμβληματικές φυσιογνωμίες της βραζιλιάνικης μουσικής του δεύτερου μισού του 20ου αι., και από τις πλέον αναγνωρίσιμες, με πλήθη …μιμητριών, φωνές. Την ακούμε σε δυο τραγούδια του Jobim. “Aqua De Beber” και “Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars)”. Στο δεύτερο συμμετέχουν ο σύζυγός της Joao Gilberto [κιθάρα, φωνητικά] και οι Stan Getz [τενόρο σαξόφωνο], Gary Burton [vibes].


On this date, March 29, 1943, Astrud Evangelina Weinert, better known as Astrud Gilberto, was born in Salvador, Brazil. She is one of the emblematic figures of Brazilian music for the second part of the 20th century, and one of the most recognizable voices, with huge crowds of imitators. We hear her on two songs by Jobim. “Aqua De Beber” and “Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars)”. On the second one, the band includes her husband Joao Gilberto [guitar, vocals] Stan Getz [tenor saxophone], and Gary Burton [vibes].

…and perfect for a Sunday!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
