November 25, 2006 - My Boat is Empty

From the stern to the bow
Oh my boat is empty
Yes, my heart is empty
From the hole to the how.

From the rudder to the sail
Oh my boat is empty
Yes my hand is empty
From the wrist to the nail.

From the ocean to the bay
Oh the sand is clean
Oh my mind is clean
From the night to the day.

From the stern to the bow
Oh my boat is empty
Oh my head is empty
From the nape to the brow.

From the east to the west

Oh the stream is long
Yes my dream is wrong
From the birth to the death.

(Caetano Veloso, The Empty Boat)

Tropicalia! Though I played a lot of other great music on last Saturday night's show, the late 60s tracks from artists like Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Os Mutantes are particular favourites of mine. Most of these recordings feature the beguiling orchestrations of producer extraordinaire Rogerio Duprat - who, sadly, passed away on October 25.

Check out some video of these free spirits via youtube, while you still can!
