There’s something in the water in São Paulo, Brazil.
A circle of contemporary artists are making some lovely sounds, with a vibe that draws inspiration from ’70s Kingston, yet is undoubtedly their own. São Paulo’s roots run deep, and these artists of the now are pushing the music forward, capturing something new, yet keeping the vintage/analog flavor alive in their music.
Introducing Anelis Assumpção. You may recognize her last name from her father, the incredible Itamar Assumpção. Govermnent (name) aside, Anelis is making a mark of her own. Together with producer Beto Villares, Gustavo Lenza and Céu, among others of Brazil’s finest musicians, she’s cookin’ some some tunes that you need in your life. I heard her debut LP drops on Scubidu Records in 2 weeks, search it out. In between time, enjoy “Neverland” from “Sou Suspeita Estou Sujeita Não sou Santa“.
*LOVE the nod to the The Abyssinians “Satta Massagana” at 4:59. Classic!Read more →
