Sky and Sea

Some Thurday afternoon fun: the great Brazilian accordionist Sivuca performing "Céu e Mar" on Swedish television in 1969.

Sivuca, who passed away last December, actually lived in New York for a dozen years or so (mainly working with Miriam Makeba), which makes his comparative anonymity in the States even more baffling. He had quite a following in Scandanavia, though. Great stuff.
