Is Christmas with Mango still Christmas?

I am not so sure.  Lencois, a town of diamond miners in Chapada Diamantina (Brazil) seems like a hot oven, where you existentially can understand, what it means to be “bahiano”, somebody from Bahia, famous for being less active for the rest of the world (not use the word “lazy”). The world did not finish on 21st of December, but it is definitely finishing. Dry trees. No rain. Tourist coming still in and not noticing the changes, because yes – they were not here before. What am I doing here? Ehmmm. Probably as many other people here looking for peace and quite, away from buzzing buses and robberies and shootings. I will understand later, I think. But now I just know that I miss snow. I terribly miss snow. Here is my song for you and the snow all over the place. This song is called Prieblanda, means dusk. Lyrics by my adored H. Radauskas. Music by me and Jhno. Click and listen. Merry Christmas.

PRIEBLANDA

Another naive piece of music

Posted in CandyCactus Music, Downloads, English with tags on 2010-07-27 by candycactus

Pora puodukų kavos ir nakties valandų ramybėje ir įrašiau štai tokį gabalėlį:

Pasikalbėjau su dievais

Ir vėl į žemę sugrįžau

Ir vaikštau skersgatviais kreivais,

Ir vėl eilėraščius rašau.

Danguj saulėlydis geltonas,

O aš į žemę sugrįžtu,

Kur groja senas patefonas

Ir kvepia liepos ties paštu.

H. Radauskas

2 min muzikos tai atrodo labai juokingai prisiklausius indiškų ar arabiškų gabalų, kurie tęsiasi valandomis 🙂

—————–

Few cups coffee, few solitary hours in the night and recorded another piece:

Talked to gods

But now I’ m back to earth

Strolling in the crooked streets

And writing poems again.

In the sky – yellow sunset

and I’m coming back to earth

Where the old gramophone is playing and

The linden trees smell good along the post.

(H. Radauskas)

2 min of music seems so naive and funny after listening of listening to Indian and Arabic music, where a piece might go several hours.. 🙂
