Unfortunately I won't be in Luanda for this year's Jazz Festival due to work constraints. It's been brutal not being able to go. However, Caipirinha Lounge readers can still get their fill of concert photography and moving commentary from one of the Lounge's "neighbors", the excellent blog Attelier dos Mangueirinhas by my friend Ngoi Salucombo. It's a Caipirinha Lounge - Attelier dos Mangueirinhas collaboration: Attelier das Caipirinhas! Happy reading.

Infelizmente não estarei em Luanda para assistir o Jazz Festival, por questões laborais. Nem imaginam a minha "inveja". Mas, os leitores do Lounge podem sempre se manter informados e actualizados lendo um dos meus "vizinhos", o excelente Attelier dos Mangueirinhas, blog editado pelo mano Ngoi Salucombo. É uma colaboração Caipirinha Lounge - Attelier dos Mangueirinhas: Attelier das Caipirinhas! Boas leituras.

“Without music, life would be an error.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Caipirinha Lounge is all about music in Portuguese or by Lusophone artists. It's born out of a sincere belief that Lusophone music should reach a much larger audience. The lounge features music from Brazil, Angola, Portugal, Guine-Bissau, Cabo Verde, São Tomé & Principe, Mozambique, Galicia, and even Timor-Leste. Occasionally, there will be posts about singers so good that the fact that they do not sing in Portuguese is momentarily overlooked.
The purpose of this bilingual blog is purely educational. Plug in your earphones and hear rhythms from places you have never heard of, from artists you have never heard about, sung in the world's most beautiful language. If you like a song, you can download it by right clicking on it and then clicking "save target as". If you like it a lot, buy the cd, support the artist, keep good music alive.
If you are a singer or a label and want a particular song taken down, please contact me. Or, if you have music you think I will enjoy, do send! claudio.silva(at)caipirinhalounge.com
