Mariana Aydar – Diva Rising

Mariana Aydar is one of Brazil’s many new divas on the rise. She grew up in a musical family, always backstage, sleeping in dressing rooms and accompanying composers and singers to the studio. After studying music in Brazil and in Boston, she spent a year in Paris where she met Seu Jorge (see Brasis the Song), who had her as the opening act on his European tour. She has sung beside many famous singers, including Seu Jorge, Elba Ramalho, Dominguinhos, Arnaldo Antunes, Toni Garrido, Samuel Rosa, Daniela Mercury, Céu, and João Donato, among others.

Her 1st CD, Kativa 1, came out in 2006. Deixa O Verão (below) is a single from that disc.

Save the Summer

While I was escaping, you invented
Any apology for us to stay
And just like that, we didn’t leave

This sofa is just great
Save the Summer for later

Seu Olhar Lyrics – Seu Jorge

This is a song called “Seu Olhar (Your Look)” which I really like off his new album ‘Ámerica Brasil’.

In fact, the whole album is great but this song in particular caught me off guard, mainly due to the way he sings it. Since it’s a song, I’m going to do a rough translation instead of an extact one.

“Your Look”

We’ve got places to go
From here we can go anywhere
But I want to stay
I want to dive deeper
Just to find myself
In your eyes
Everything is already changing
I can breathe you in
I can sense you
In the dark
I’ve been on the road so long
We all have
I didn’t want a thing
Then you came
After a heavy wave
Was a peaceful one
It’s like being with you on a pillow
And sleeping so well
It was your look
That enchanted me so
Now I just want a little more
Of this love of yours
