Brazilian Music Friday Feature #33

Today's pick is Sonhando Acordado (Sleeping Awake) by Arismar do Espírito Santo. I think that I played this one in his ensemble class at California Brazil Camp in 2012 (or at least I have a chart for it, I can't remember which). This performance on SESC Brazil features many great musicians, including Léa Freire on piano! 

I also just discovered that he has a newer album (2015), Roda Gingante, that I haven't heard yet - I'll have to listen to it over the long weekend. 

What are you going to listen to this weekend to relax and welcome the beginning of summer?

Enjoy the song, and your weekend!
