Notes

Arguably the most popular folk song from Brazil, Peixe Vivo, like many others, is wrapped in a musical paradox: expressing a deep longing full of nostalgia, yet resolutely upbeat and cheerful in its rendition. By contrast, Por que tu não acorda? is more reflective in its setting, with a slow, flowing tempo, perhaps more in the nature of chorinho (meaning ‘little cry’). Written in loving memory of Theodora, who passed away so young, haunting bossa nova rhythms can be heard intermittently underpinning the vocal line.
