Welcome to my world of music!
I have a huge audio library. I am the kind of person that listens to almost anything. That girl lives in a movie and the music plays in the background inside her mind. I love to sing and music is a vehicle for my feelings. I use it when I need to get deep into some story. It runs through my veins!
When I was a teenager we didn’t have the internet at our disposal as today. All I listened to was the radio and some CDs with international artists that a friend gave me — he was my salvation at that time. I needed good music, and he fed my soul into the meaningful rock n’ roll. Play, repeat, play, and repeat. All-day, all the time. Sing with the music, cry with the music, feel the music, and be reborn with those notes!
But let’s start the real playlist, shall we? It is not a top 10 or anything because all of these made equal importance in my past life — the hurtful teenage years. The 2000s were rich in music, but some of them were older than those years. But they were my company.
I was thinking to start with Portuguese music and some International, but I’ve changed my mind. For now, just some Portuguese music. Maybe I will make another list with the International part if I have time. My playlist seems like does not have an end, so let’s divide them into genres! I will forget a lot of them since I am remembering more and more bands that I’ve loved. Oh, the list is growing like yeast!
Fado and Folk Music
- Dulce Pontes
She is a Portuguese songwriter and singer who performs various musical styles. She is a world music artist, you can check the details on Wikipedia. I love her voice, she sings with her soul and that inspires me all the time that I hear her. I dare to say nothing more. She inspired me in my entry for the Fair Winds challenge, and I’ve already shared my favorite music with the poetry, in this story.
She is a renowned Fado singer who travels all over the world to feed the soul of Portugal to the world. You can read more details here. I cannot say enough about Fado, that is our traditional music that deepens the meaning of “Saudade”…
