Quem, Quem, Quem

Song Sketch

This Wednesday is my maternal grandmother's birthday. I never got to meet her as she passed away before I was born but I've heard so many stories; she was very much into music and completely zany and lovable.

My mother is the little girl on the steps.

I thought I'd cover a song in her native language, Portuguese, that my mother said she remembered her singing. It's about a duck and goose with musical aspirations that may or may not be supported by actual talent.

Happy Birthday, Vovó!
