Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Well ... do you like our little musical world trip? I hope you do. I have read wonderful haiku during this little journey around the world. It's really a joy to prepare these episodes of Carpe Diem. Doing the research for them and learn a little bit more about those musical styles and dances.
Today we are leaving South America and fly towards Europe ... visiting the land of Fado, Portugal.
|Fado (painting by Jose Malhoa 1920)
Fado only appeared after 1830 in Lisbon. It was introduced in the port districts like Alfama, Mouraria and Bairro Alto.
It's a wonderful kind of music ... I love Fado songs, they are so full of joy, passion, sadness and so on. Was it fate? To share this with you? I don't know, but I loved writing this post.
sings right from her heart
was it destiny?
fate re-done in fado
strong belief in music from the heart
What a joy! I love the way these haiku came on paper, while listening to the sweet voice of Amalia Rodrigues, the Queen of Fado.
Have fun, be inspired, listen to Fado and become creative. Share your haiku on Fado with us all. Enjoy it ... and be prepared ... we are traveling further to the Far East to hear the Japanese folk music of Sakura and Taiko (Japanese Drum Music).
This prompt will stay on 'till February 9th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next episode later on today around 10.00 PM (CET).
