When Dori Caymmi’s song 'Like A Lover' became a hit for Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, it opened the door to a career that spanned two continents. Caymmi's penchant for musical storytelling is unique.

Dori Caymmi's birthday is Tuesday. We'll celebrate with several o ...

Here's the story from the Wall Street Journal, and Ed Motta's instagram from August.
