Do you Samba?

Do you know Bebel Gilberto?
Maybe not.

But you probably know her songs, Samba da Benção and Tanto Tempo, both featured in the intriguingly intimate "Closer" and world's exploration of "Eat, Pray, and Love" (and some other movies and TV-series). Also one of her most popular song in English, So Nice.

Bebel Gilberto is a darling Brazilian singer, popular in the world of Bossa nova. She got that beautiful unique voice, lovely flowing hair, and combined with the sexy tongue of Portuguese language (yes, i do find it sexy) - you'll get the picture :) Check on her twitter @bebelgilberto and her FB page to know more..

I am lucky enough to see her in person during her Intimate, Ultimate concert at Social House Jakarta a while ago. I even got myself free tickets for i won a contest on Ismaya's web. Lovely present indeed for my birthday :)

Such a soothing sound of her... Every time I heard Samba da Benção I magically transferred into a white sandy beach, sea breeze caressing my skin - a moment of tranquility in the buzzing reality. My eyes will be closed and i shall fly for a second.
Her voice is a remedy...

Dare to try?

E melhor ser alegre que ser triste/Alegria e a melhor coisa que existe
E assim como a luz no coracao
Mas pra fazer um samba com beleza/E preciso um bocado de tristeza
Senao nao se faz um samba nao

Fazer samba nao e contar piada/E quem faz samba assim nao e de nada
O bom samba e uma forma de oracao
Porque o samba e a tristeza que balanca/ E a tristeza tem sempre uma esperanca
De um dia nao ser mais triste nao

Poe um pouco de amor numa cadencia/ E vai ver que ninguem no mundo vence
A beleza que tem um samba nao
Porque o samba nasceu la na Bahia/ E se hoje ele e branco na poesia
Ele e negro demais no coracao
