Ney and the Glory of Male Divas.

In the movie Party Girl, when Parker Posey learns the joys of the Dewey Decimal System and starts organizing the 12-inch singles of her DJ roommate, she picks up a Sylvester album and says, "Divas, male."

Add to that list Brazilian legend Ney Matogrosso. Though not that well known in the U.S., imagine my delight this afternoon when I turned the corner from around my house and saw the above handbill in front of the Brava Theater. If you've never experience Ney, here is a clip of him in action.

Gary - Okay, he's a bit over the top, but for someone in his late 60s to just be daring enough to dress up like that deserves some credit. Okay, I don't plan to dress that way when I'm his age.
