"Luogo Comune"/Lugar Comun...sung by Jovanotti...composed by Sergio Mendes...from the Mendes CD: 'Encanto'.
Until last week...I had never heard of the Italian singer Jovanotti (above).
Sergio Mendes...well...he's a legend in the USA and Brasil.
Now...I've fallen in love with this arrangement...hitting replay over and over.
It has a great primal beat...bouncy...but also with a sensual female chorus.
All written and arranged by Mendes in the wonderful Italian idioma.
Maybe...it will captivate you too.
