Sonf of Nostalgia
(Canto da saudade)

by Humberto MAURO


“Colonel” Januário is running for mayor of his village. Maria Fausta, his goddaughter, is courted by Galdino, the local accordion player, but she has a relationship with João do Carmo without her father knowing it. During the electoral campaign, the young woman disappears. Galdino eventually finds her: she was with her lover. The couple returns to the village and the “Colonel” celebrates the wedding. During the party, Galdino is missing; he preferred to leave. According to the local legend, on certain days, one can hear the sad and nostalgic sound of an accordion coming from the sugar-cane field…
