Quincas

"Quincas" is part of the soundtrack of Brazilian film Quincas Berro Dágua, based on a novel from Brazilian author Jorge Amado, originally named "A Morte e a Morte de Quincas Berro d'Água." I've never seen the film, but the book... actually, the author, is one of my favorites.

The story happens in the Northeastern state of Bahia - from where the writer is from; a place full of beaches and known for a society of very calm and easy-going people. Quincas, the main character, lives a low-profile life until one day, fed up of his own style, decides to let loose and enjoy life. He dies twice, and that's basically all I can say without spoiling it.

I came across this soundtrack from well known Brazilian composer and producer Beto Villares and thought this song was beautiful. Very representative for those who know the character. Very easy to listen to if you're just browsing around, searching for some new music.
