Brazilian Heart / February 2011
INSPIRAÇÃO (Inspira Ação) - INSPIRATION (Inspire Action)
One of my artistic inspirations in life is Regina Casé (actress, cultural agitator, and host of a Brazilian TV program called “Um Pé de Quê?” about Environment and Sustainability). After watching one of her plays in the 1980’s, I fell in love with theatre and dance and abandoned my History College. That change gave me the opportunity to solidify my love for music and flourish as a human being. In 2009, a Brazilian documentary called “Dzi Croquettes” (with choreographies by Brooklyn native Lennie Dale) revealed the birth of the irreverent approach I so much loved in Regina. Lennie Dale fell in love with Bossa Nova in 1960 and inspired lots of local artists in Rio de Janeiro in a time when Brasil was under a dictatorship.
Share one of your inspirations with me! : )

TRIBO OF BRAZILIAN INDIANS FOUND! (It’s possible to live in a different way in this world, folks)
“Conheço a aurora com seu desatino
Conheço o amanhecer com o seu tesouro
Conheço as andorinhas sem destino
Conheço rios sem desaguadouros
Conheço o medo do princípio ao fim
Conheço tudo, conheço tudo
Menos a mim”
I know the dawn with its madness
I know the day break with its treasure
I know swallows with no destiny
I know rivers with no spillways
I know fear from beginning to end
I know everything.
Everything, but myself.
(Quote from a song lyric by Brazilian poet Ferreira Gullar)
“A relationship is a living thing. It needs and benefits from the same
attention to detail that an artist lavishes on his art.” (David Viscott)
