Fortuna & The Benedictine Monks

Photo: Daniel Danielewicz
(Tr: Good week
Artist: Fortuna
Country: Brazil
Genre: World
Language: Spanish
Video: Buena Semana on Youtube
Album: Cælestia (2001)

In this uplifting song, Brazilian-Jewish singer Fortuna's vocals are accompanied by a choir consisting of Benedictine Monks from the Saint Benedict Monastery of São Paulo, Brazil. For those not familiar with her works I recommend getting hold of her latest album, a collection of some of her best songs from 1993 onwards; "15 anos". She is still very much an undiscovered gem, although her native Brazil has embraced her with open arms.
