Mas sei o que é ter saudades da minha cidade, com lágrimas nos olhos, quando o Paulo Flores começava a cantar o seu "já vi mar banhar a areia, em Luanda..."
Isto porque para mim, musica é memoria, sobretudo quando cantada na lingua que me viu a nascer.
One of his favorite lusophone artists is Waldemar Bastos, in the title photo, and one of my favorite photos of his is the one directly above. After months of compulsive photo stealing from Massalo's Flickr page (many of his exquisite photographs grace this website), I finally got to meet the exciting photographer in person and can now call him a friend. You can spend hours going over his photos, and if you're busy right now, I thoroughly recommend a visit to his website as another way to procrastinate. You can read Massalo's blog and marvel at his work here, here and here. Oh, and here too.
