Saudade – an emotional gauntlet.

There is no word in English for the Portuguese noun, Saudade. It translates roughly as “a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves”, according to Wikipedia.

I did my best to create an hour long mixtape devoted to songs that evoke this complicated emotion. Enjoy.
