Waiting the Rain

"Waiting the rain" is a common saying in Amapá, and it refers to people who came to these lands temporarily, usually to earn money. The fact is that this rain usually lasts a lifetime, and that is the case for the guitarist Nonato Leal, who came to spend a rain that has been lasting almost 70 years, and while he watches the rain, Nonato reflects on his life and music.
