True rebels, after all, are as rare as true lovers, and, in both cases, to mistake a fever for a passion can destroy one’s life.

Saudade - Otto (feat. Julieta Venegas)


Saudade quero ver pra crer
Saudade de te procurar
Na vida tudo pode acontecer
Partir e nunca mais voltar

Como um bom barco no mar
Eu vou, eu vou

(Julieta Venegas)
No tengo miedo es la verdad
Y lo que sucederá
Podría perderme en esta felicidad
Cuando estás conmigo
La distancia y el silencio
Son solo un instante que ya terminó

Saudade quero ver pra crer
Saudade de te procurar
Na vida tudo pode acontecer
Partir e nunca mais voltar

Como um bom barco no mar
Eu vou, eu vou

Álbum: Certa manhã acordei de sonhos intranquilos

"As someone who identifies himself as an African man, I try to show that pride in my work.  I also try to show the importance of freedom.  That another person’s perception or fear of your Blackness should in no way be limiting you from being who you feel in your heart you are.  

You can dress how you’d like, or undress how you’d like.  Your good times should be celebrated and your down times should be embraced.  I want my work to be an example for the developing youth.  So that they too can see representation of themselves that isn’t one-dimensional.

I feel blessed to have the mentality that I am an African artist.  I see the world differently.  And this mentality is rooted in having the desire to know where I come from.  Let’s give Black kids that same desire.”
