Ben Harper Duets With Rising Brazilian Singer Vanessa da Mata

In preparation for my interview tomorrow with Ben Harper (my third time talking to the roots rocker), I stumbled across a forum post talking about Ben's duet with Brazilian chanteuse Vanessa da Mata for the song "Boa Sorte/Good Luck" on her album that is available as an import on Amazon. While I don't know anything about Vanessa, I do know that Ben's a great judge of character and knows talent. The song, as far as I know, doesn't have a release date for the US, but here's music set to a photo montage. It's truly a captivating and beautiful track. The pair harmonize well together and Ben's Weissenborn playing is, as always, magic. And as long as I'm talking about Ben, he had a Jimi moment last night, performing an instrumental version of the "Star Spangled Banner" at game three of the NBA Finals. Watch that too -- and I dare you to not get chills.
