Águas de Março

_DSC4754-2

The tropical storms that hit most of Brazil this time of the year can easily produce non-stop lightning in the thousands. Those storms have inspired Tom Jobim‘s song Águas de Março (Waters of March), which come, as one verse says, to close summertime. If you live in a tropical area, you´re probably used to the continuous disco-like flashing and the pompous ear-wracking track list that comes along with it.

As tempestades que atingem a maior parte do Brasil nessa época do ano podem facilmente produzir milhares de raios ininterruptamente. Essas tempestades inspiraram a canção Águas de Março de Tom Jobim, que chegam, como diz um dos versos, fechando o verão. Se você mora numa região tropical, provavelmente está familiarizado ao piscar de luzes como numa discoteca e aos sons ensurdecedores da trilha sonora que vem como acompanhamento.
