Chico Buarque de Hollanda
I was talking to friends on Friday and they had never heard Chico Buarque. He’s one of my favourite composers/singer/song-writers ever – I grew up listening to his songs and still listen to them regularly. He has composed hundreds of songs and I don’t like all of them, but the ones I like would fill in over three hours of listening.
So I decided to make an introductory compilation for them, with a cross-section of his songs. He’s versatile and likes to experiment with different genres. I tried to keep it short, but the shortest I could manage was this, 1:15 of pure musical delight.
And like my other compilation, I used Adobe Premiere to put the tracks together, then saved as mp3.
