The Speedo Symphony

It’s a rare occasion when something can make me fall over laughing at the weekend’s dead end, but this did! (The first 20 seconds are must-see TV!) Goofy as this seems, 74-year old Hermeto Pascoal is a well-known and respected Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist. Nature is a recurring theme in his body of works, as in Música da Lagoa in which that water burbling you did as a kid in the tub becomes seriously arty musicial expression. Too bad they didn’t cover “Tiny Bubbles!”
