Martinho da Vila

(image source
Martinho da Vila is a well-known Brazilian Samba artist. Came across his music purely by chance and thought of sharing one of his songs here. It belongs to the Saudade genre.  

Saudade is a Portuguese and Galician word difficult to translate adequately, which describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which is lost. It often carries a fatalist tone and a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might really never return. (ref. Wikipedia)

Explore his music as well as his genre of music, both have some phenomenal compositions.
