i remember

1987

i love singing in different languages.

and i guess i owe some of that to celia cruz.

i remember watching this on pbs,

and wanting to sing like that lady.

i didn’t know what she was saying

but she made it sound like fun.

    bonjour, mon petit papillon!

    Here is an interesting link to music in Mozambique.

    The connection between Celia Cruz and this music is rhythmic; you can hear it in the beats, quite unique, magnetic. There appears to be a connection to Burning Spear, too

    beaucoup d’amour
