João Gilberto – Estate (Rome 1983)

Many ‘Brasileros’ speak both Italian and Portuguese – the languages are so similar. Joao is no exception — here he sings ‘Estate’ in Italian as he is live in Roma.. it is a beautiful love story – in English “In Summer”!

His peers always ‘put him down’ as a singer’ so he was always self-conscious about singing live BUT he was a songwriter and HAD to sing his music.. if you watch closely when the orchestra begins in the Media (middle) the expression on his face completely changes to relief that now he can just play his guitar.. 😊
