Song of the Day: Balancê

You never know where you’re going to find good new music and yesterday it came courtesy of Tumblr. An awesome account that I follow reblogged Voz Di Vento from Portuguese artist, Sara Tavares. I couldn’t stop listening to it all day yesterday and I ended up buying a number of her tracks from iTunes last night.

Balancê is one of my favorites by Sara and it’s the first track that shows up when you search for her on iTunes. If you recognize it, it’s probably because J. Cole sampled it for his 2009 track, Losing Your Balance. I remember liking that song, but never thought to look into the sample. I’m glad I finally found the root of the song, because the original is addicting, as is the rest of Sara’s jazzy, folk music. Listen to the track below!
