Currently working on a delightful second book about her experiences with her students when she was still a teacher years ago. She is still putting the stories together, no working title and no schedule yet as to when it will be finished. We will keep the website posted for new updates.
Angel of Brazil: One Hundred Poems for Roberto Carlos written by Soledad Del Rios is a significant collection of poetry that recalls feelings of love with carefully arranged verses.
The book of poetry is a tribute to the Brazilian musical phenomenon Roberto Carlos who began his career in 1970. Carlos, one of the most famous artists in the world and undoubtedly the first “pop star” in Brazil, is famous for his romantic songs, such as ” Friend “and” Fera Ferida. “
Those who do not know the artist or the music can appreciate the words written in a conversational format. The collection is not only about the artist himself, but of human emotion. Del Rios has been writing since she was a teenager, investigating the deep feelings of romance and passion; as well as the bittersweet feeling of longing. The words allow a connection between music and verse, which they give in the mind.
Del Rios comments on the impact of Carlos’ music as “deep sensation,” and channels the same emotion. Del Rios also talks about enjoying the positive things that improve the quality of life and precious memories.
Early years were filled with music, poetry and song. My mother was an organist and love to sing opera. She rocked me to bed every night singing those of her favorite programs as well as children’s songs. At age 7, GOD called my mother to heaven. My father had to resume his job which required long periods of absence out of the country. A new and strange world opened. Writing became increasingly a hobby and a substitute for speech.
