Could this be a hidden Brazilian masterpiece from the 70s? This album is enjoying great success, lazing on sunny beaches alongside Caetano Veloso’s Muito and Arthur Verocai’s first album. With his brown curls and sweet summer of love look, Sessa even looks like Veloso back in the early 70s. And yet, the album and its singer are very much from the modern day. Sessa grew up in Brazil before living in New York and it was back in São Paulo, during the pandemic, that he recorded this second album. The impact of quarantine on the music is tangible, particularly in the title track ’Estrela acesa’. No electronic instruments are used here, indeed, there is no sign of the contemporary world whatsoever. Sessa sounds isolated in time, recreating the magic of 60s tropicalism where Brazilian music, bossa and samba freely mingled with pop, folk, jazz, and symphonic orchestrations. All this and more can be tasted in this album, all wrapped up in Sessa’s classical guitar and silky voice and orchestrated with luxurious instruments. The kinds of tracks you could imagine him playing alone in his room. Lifted by the sound of flutes and ethereal female vocals, the songs are hypnotic. Estrela acesa is the work of an alchemist, a magician who flawlessly achieves the ultimate fantasy: Leonard Cohen and his backing singers joining forces with Baden Powell’s afro-sambas. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?
