Brahim-Djelloul/Capuçon/Villa-Lobos: Bachiana nº 5.

Normally, when people outside of Ibero-America think of Ibero-American music, if they think of anything, they think of samba, bossa nova, salsa, maybe Tex-Mex (update: flamenco and tango). That's it.

Spain and Portugal themselves are assumed to have little of its own to add to the list.

That was Amel Brahim-Djelloul (soprano), Gautier Capuçon (cello) and the Orchestre du Violon Sur Le Sable interpreting the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos' Bachiana nº 5.


Currently, no heterodox economist is more talked about than Yanis Varoufakis (and for good reasons, too). Here is one of my posts on Varoufakis: his views on Post-Modernism.

Nothing like a good laugh on a Saturday morning.
