On the radio in Brazil 

Posted at 10:26 under MUSIC

RADIO SENADO 91,7 MHz in BRAZIL will start to play 1 or possibly 2 of my songs from "BLISSA NOVA" from today!

you can listen on the web all over the world, but daytime there is only debates and political discussions, and the music is played at other hours.

normally, this radio station is playing ONLY brazilian music, so i am glad to be an exception to their rule. probably because i have recorded translations of brazilian songs ;) because it's my translations they will air. i think it's a public, noncommercial radio channel.

the web address is
in the menu in the left, click "radio ao vivo" and choose your player. Simple as that!

in central brazil, Radio Senado is aired on 91,7 MHz.

i think the songs are my english versions of gilbero gil's EU VIM DA BAHIA (i went from bahia) and my duet with ALINE DE LIMA in luiz bonfas TRISTEZA (this sadness).

Raccoon Princess 

Posted at 13:29 under MUSIC

yesterday i watched a wonderfully colourful japanese movie from 2005 - PRINCESS RACCOON (operetta tanuki goten) by 82-year-old (at the time) japanese director Seijun Suzuki. it's a very experimental kind of movie, almost like filmed theatre with painted backgrounds, inspired by japanese folklore and theatre traditions mixed with western fairytales. i love it!!!!!

here is the wonderful theme song, sung by Zhang Ziyi and Joe Odagiri:

and here is the whole scene with english subtitles, the same song comes towards the middle of the clip:

i'm working to finish a new single, to be released in JUNE !!!!

it's two new songs, featuring the amazing Juan Patricio Mendoza on bass.

it'll be finished during the weekend, so i'll post some samples next week. i'm so happy with the result....... and the cherry trees bloom in japan. so every thing blossoms at the sime time.

i'm so happy (and thankful) that i can rejoice at sakura. my eyes are peacefully brimming with white blossom.

irritating hotmail 

Posted at 13:48

some very nice person(s) - yes i am ironic - with a hotmail email address has reported my messages as JUNK/SPAM.

so, the consequence for me is - surprise - my computer (IP) is BLOCKED from sending emails to ANY hotmail address in the whole world.


is it my punishment because i don't want to use hotmail myself, because i think it s***s ???

so, if you're on my mailing list, and you have a hotmail address, maybe you can't receive any more of my emails.
i'm sorry.
please complain at the hotmail/msn website.

just another reason not to use it.
