Vinicius de Moraes: Carta ao Tom /Letter to Tom

Esteemed Readers, this time I would like to present you a very particular song by Vinicius de Moraes composed for Tom Jobim. The 70s was a tough period in Brazil, so Tom Jobim & many other genii of the Brazilian music, including Chico Buarque, had to pass through an exile experience. In one of his interview Jobim confessed that his staying abroad was a time of a great frustration, unbearable sadness. This mood might be clearly felt in his songs of that period.

“Carta ao Tom/Letter to Tom” is a brilliant music solution invented by his friend Vinicius de Moraes. It is a symbol of a true friendship reminding us of importance to encourage our milieu in hard times. In case of Tom Jobim we might say that “Vinicius in need is Vinicius indeed”. 🙂
