Vinicius de Moraes e Toquinho: Escravo de Alegria

A genius duet of Toquinho & Vinicius de Moraes inspired songs composed not only by our great maître Vinicius. “Escravo da Alegria/ The Slave of Joy” is a song made by Toquinho & dedicated to him. In fact, a great poet-diplomat, as de Moraes was called, had a very interesting habit: to get married. He had nine official wives & only one son among his numerous off-springs! 🙂 So, Toquinho was alike an adopted son for him.

“Being a slave of Joy, now at the day light, guys, I feel that it is not normal. If love is a carnival costume, I always stay in the condition of carnival” sings Toquinho praising a joyful soul of the grand maître Vinicius. May this song give you some spring mood, Esteemed Readers.

  1. What a delight. Thank you, Maria. Getting married nine times? I can’t imagine it.
