Out of the cover of a book

Brazilian music has been something I've really enjoyed for many years now, I was first introduced to it by a compilation put together by David Byrne of Talking Heads fame, called Brazil Classics: Vol.1 Beleza Tropical. That album introduced me to some of the great Tropicalia artists, and some simply gorgeous music. I still love to listen to it. Ever since then, I enjoy hearing about new music from that Portuguese speaking nation. Cibelle is Brazilian, but has moved to England, and often sings in English. No matter, whatever language, she's a marvel. Here she has chosen a Tom Waits tune.

"Green Grass"
