Vinicius de Moraes & Toquinho: o Velho e a Flor

Esteemed Readers, I would like to present you a romantic fruit of our genius duet Vinicius de Moraes & Toquinho dedicated to love. “O velho e a flor/ The oldman & the flower” (1971) is made in accordance with the ancient minstrel tradition & transmits tragedy & tenderness of love. An oldman longs for comprehending what the love is but nobody can explain him. He hears various opinions & only another oldman holding a rose flower is able to reveal its meaning: “Love is affection. It is a thorn not seen in every flower. It is life that begins bleeding among open petals of love”.  It has been used as a soundtrack for a modern telenovela “Espelho da Vida/ The mirror of Life” (2018).
