RIP The Girl from Ipanema

Astrud Gilberto

So sad, we adore Astrud Gilberto chez minkie. Sexiest, softest voice. We got engaged in Leblon (next beach on from Ipanema), and I’m sure the bossa nova vibe had something to do with it ❤️

Still sad about this. So much understated class about her voice and her stuff generally, as well of course as Jobim’s whole oeuvre. Latin music ftw generally. Imagine being born into that, with no puritan beast beating you up. Bliss.
