A PANDA DO SOL - "HOMENAGEM"
NEW ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE
"Homenagem" is the new project of the multicultural Berlin band "A Panda do Sol". It is a recognition of love to some of the greatest Samba composers who gave birth to the genre. The album presents 8 songs, one for each author, and offers a singular harmonic reinterpretation.
When "A Panda do Sol" started its adventure, the ensemble went diving into the enormous legacy of Brazilian composers and fell deeply in love with the roots of Brazilian Samba music. They begun an infinite journey back in time to slowly learn and share the poetry of the major composers of the genre.
For this second album, the band wanted to make a demonstration of love to some of the composers & interpreters who gave birth to this unique musical tradition. To join their musical language to the work of the masters, "A Panda do Sol" selected one song per artist and played with the musical field of each song, turning them from major to minor, or minor to major.
They worked on arranging and adapting these eight Sambas to their new harmonic fields, leaving the original lyrics untouched, apart from the song "Emilio", originally written for "Emilia".
The album was illustrated by Italian artist Vincenzo Suscetta.

JACARÉ - "SAINDO DA LAGOA"
April 30th, 2021
The EP “Saindo da Lagoa” takes you on a journey along the coast of Brazil and portrays some emblematic rythms such as the Côco, the Ciranda, and the Samba. The compositions are influenced by the roots of the gender, the first “sambistas” who blended poetry, rhythm, spontaneity, and the beauty of vocal harmonies in order to create timeless songs that all will remember and sing along. Their first single “Côco das Mães” is inspired by the repentistas Beija-Flor e Oliveira who made them discover this traditional chant from which they created a song. It is an homage to the mothers of this earth. Recorded live with guests musicians Neide Alves, Sabina Celeste and Ícaro Kái, a video clip of the per-formance will be release on the 16.04.21 to-gether with the single
