[Music] Vitor Ramil – Milonga de dos Hermanos (lyrics by Jorge Luis Borges)

Brazilian singer Vitor Ramil is a new name to me.  His ouevre is amazing on its own, and I’ll be exploring it some time in the future, but what was most impressive was his setting of this poem by Jorge Luis Borges to music which matches the words wonderfully.
