Daniel Viglietti y el Grupo de Experimentación Sonora del ICAIC - "Construccion"

A seminal nueva canción by a Brazilian singer-songwriter (Chico Buarque), recorded by a Uruguayan folk singer (Daniel Viglietti) in Cuba and released on that country's state-run record label (EGREM).

Welcome to 1972.

It was actually written in Portuguese and translated into Spanish later. If you haven't heard Buarque's original 1971 version, you're missing out. One of my all-time favorite tracks.

oh really?

i mean, i've heard Buarque sing it in Portuguese (as "Construcao") in a live performance, but i thought that the Spanish version was the original!

ahh... my bad! i'll edit that (and i'll go listen to the original too!)

thanks for the correction!
