Maybe one of the most beautiful musical performances in cinema, I recall when seeing this in the theater it simply held me, as if freezing time, I just sat there marveling in the tenderness of Caetano Veloso’s voice singing over this poignant trio… utterly breathtaking. Though not written for Habla con Ella (Talk to Her), this version of the song was arranged especially for the film. Caetano Veloso was just here last night at the Paramount in Oakland with Gilberto Gil, it must have been a wonderful concert. So please, sit back and feel the sweet depths of this endearing rendition.
