Manha De Carnaval

The 1959 film ‘Black Orpheus’ included this Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Maria Sigman song and began the craze for bossa nova (new trend). I wanted to sing this the way it was intended to be heard, in Portuguese, but was nervous of my pronunciation so instead I wrote my own words to convey the dreamy quality of looking back on a chance meeting.
