Although this post is a bit nerdy if you really feel the love for Portugal, and not just a touristic flirt, I’m pretty confident you’ll enjoy it too (how modest of me, I know!).

For obvious reasons, I’ll be focusing on his recordings of Portuguese work songs.

Make sure you don’t miss the last video and the old lady in it.
