Photographer's Note

This is a pássaro-preto (gnorimopsar chopi), a bird famous by its singing. I took this image from my veranda. For coincidence my last post was about asa-branca, a bird that is a name of a famous classic of Brazilian music sung by Luis Gonzaga, who is celebrating his 100th anniversary this year. THis singer had another song about this black bird, telling about a usage of some peoples who put this bird in a cage and did it blind to obligate it to sing better. I guess the bird could be a symbol of freedom and a homage to Mandela.
You can hear the song in the link bellow:

ASSUM PRETO

......................................................
Este é o pássaro-preto (gnorimopsar chopi), um animal famoso por seu belo canto. Por coincidência ontem postei uma foto da asa-branca, ave que é cantada numa canção célebre de Luis Gonzaga, cantor que celebra seus 100 anos em 2013. Hoje mostro a imagem de outro pássaro cantado por este cantor, que na letra falava do hábito de alguns sertanejos de colocar o animal na gaiola e o cegar para que cantasse melhor. Creio que ele também é um símbolo de liberdade, e esta foto uma maneira de homenagear Mandela.
