Simon Diaz for the Life Achievement Award 2009

I’ve decided to look at Devendra Banhart in the social network Facebook and as I looked on his Fan page, I found an interesting link referring to Simon Diaz and the possibility of making him a recipient of the 2009 Grammy Life Achievement Awards.  Well, I decided to join Devendra’s Fan page and also become part of this Simon Diaz group.  

I am currently in fascination of one of his Tonadas,Clavelito Colorado“.  I engage in long conversations with my other half regarding the meaning and the choices of words for the song.  It is perhaps, a song of hope, regret and the realization that life is tough but we need to move on with those sour moments.  Simón Diaz arranged it from a poem written by Alberto Arvelo.

This is all for today.  Posting more soon.
