From: Steve Jackson (Irving Tx.)

Of all your music, this is my favorite. My question is. What was your inspiration for the piece, and what does the name mean? The song is so spellbinding that I could listen to all the time. And I do!

All the best! And look foward to seeing next time your in Dallas!

Pat’s Answer:

that was one of those tunes where the melody just kind of showed up - i barely even remember writing it, it just was always there or something. the name is a portuguese/brasilian word that refers to a strong wind that comes across the atlantic from africa. thanks steve!
