Just ahead of next month’s album, A Pegada Agora Ã‰ Essa comes this retelling of samba standard Luz Negra. It’s a perfectly realised and crafted piece of music which rolls out emotion like waves assaulting the shoreline of your imagination. Succinct yet resolutely transforming the historical spirit of the original into something which is altogether 2021. Fuelled by a hazy breath of horns, punctuated by the sway of percussion alongside hot double-bass and highlighted by the touch of piano this is in a class all of its own. Leaving special mention to Ana Frango ElÃ©trico’s voice as it weaves in and out of the rhythms in perfect motion.
Release: January 15
