A children’s song

January 2, 2013 § 7 Comments

SaiaCarolina2This recording is a reworking of “A saia da Carolina” (Carolina’s skirt), a traditional Portuguese song that kids learn in kindergarten. The lyrics are about a little girl who wears a skirt with a lizard print. She shows a precocious sense of fashion, using animal fabrics way before René Lacoste embroidered a crocodile on his blazer.

Pedro Rebelo (concertina and production) and Sergio Rebelo (guitar). The drawing is by Ana Lebasi, a new Portuguese fashion designer well on her way to success and fame.
