[Soul] – “Boa Sorte” – Vanessa da Mata & Ben Harper


If you love soulful Brazilian music, then you’re in for a treat.

Boa Sorte, meaning “good luck” in Portuguese, is actually a song about a breakup but it is sung beautifully by Brazilian artist Vanessa da Mata and Canadian musician Ben Harper.

What I love most about this song is the Brazilian influence that is subtly added to the soft, soulful vibes. While Vanessa lends her own idiosyncrasies to the creation, Ben translates every word. So don’t worry, you won’t get lost in translation:

E so isso / That’s it
Nao tem mais jeito / There is no way
Acabou, boa sorte / It over, Good luck

Nao tenho o que dizer / I have nothing left to say
Sao so palavras / It’s only words
E o que eu sinto / And what I feel
Nao mudara / Won’t change

This has to be one of my favourites from both artists, so I hope you enjoy!
