WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

I believe in bossa

It never fails to amaze me, that when I go poking around in the YouTube vault I always find at least one gem. Here’s a number by a popular Brazilian bossa nova artist I never heard of till today, though she was huge in her own country. Rosinha de Valença.

Her bio is tragic, though. She died at 62, having spent the last 12 years of her life in a coma caused by a heart attack. You’d have to imagine that a trove of gorgeous music was trapped inside her all those years.
