Morning joy

What we're listening to here this morning. You gotta love it when she stubs out that cigarette before picking up the mic.

And in case "Sodade" ("Homesick") isn't enough joy for your morning, try "El Cuarto de Tula." As Stephen Holden of The New York Times said of the movie Buena Vista Social Club, "the concert scenes find the stage awash in such intense joy, camaraderie and nationalist pride that you become convinced that making music is a key to longevity and spiritual well-being." Well, isn't it?
