Manha De Carnaval

Manha De Carnaval is my favorite song ever to be created. I have seriously told friends that I would like to have this song play at my funeral. I think it’s the most gorgeous iteration of how funny, sad, brilliant and beautiful life is. I have played this song well over a thousand times in almost all of the renditions available (though the one by Luiz Bonfa is my favorite). Manha De Carnaval is a bossa-nova song, which translates to “morning of the carnival.” I created special lettering for this cover to reflect a softer, more whimsical feel.
