Song of the Day

Every Friday -- that's what Toda Seixta-Feira means...not sure about the rest, but this song sure as heck makes my Friday better!



UPDATE:  A blog friend in Brazil provides this translation:

Toda sexta-feira -- Every Friday

Toda roupa é branca  -- Every clothing is white

Toda pele é preta -- Every skin is black

Todo mundo canta -- Everybody sings

Todo o céu magenta -- Sky is all magenta

Toda sexta-feira -- Every Friday

Todo canto é santo -- Every song is a sacred one

E toda conta -- And every bead

Toda gota -- Every drop

Toda onda -- Every wave

Toda moça -- Every woman

Toda renda -- Every lace

Toda sexta-feira -- Every Friday

Todo o mundo é baiano junto -- Everybody is baiano altogether

"Baiano" is someone from the Brazilian state of Bahia.

  3. Couple things about this beautiful song as well; there is some gorgeous double entendre circling around in the words lace and bead and woman (the make of the delicate lace skirts these women wear) and the whole ritual is soaked in the heritage of the black slaves oppressed and unstoppable in Baiano.
