Debut album from Sabrina Malheiros, hottest new Brazilian songstress on the block! A sublime mix of bossas and sambas with touches of hip-hop, r 'n' b and electronica, 'Equilibria' combines timeless Brazilian songwriting with contemporary electronics and beats to produce one of the hottest Brazilian debuts ever. The daughter of Alex Malheiros from the legendary Brazilian group Azymuth, Sabrina wrote the majority of the tracks at home with her father giving 'Equilibria' a warm, intimate vibe. The combination of Sabrina's youthful exuberance and Alex's 30 years of song-writing experience make for an accomplished debut that's set to be the cross-over Brazilian album of 05.
With seven sambas and six bossas 'Equilibria' is pure and simple feel-good Brazil from start to finish. 'Terra De Ninguem is an up-tempo flute laden bossa that begins proceedings, swiftly followed by another bossa 'Love Sorte'. Next up is 'Saudade Rio', a sweet slow samba with a dash of r 'n' b that's a peon to the city Sabrina calls home and as she tells us, who'se influence runs throughout 'Equilibria': I was born in Rio de Janeiro, the city of samba and I've always listened to this music as long as I can remember. Whether it's Sergio Mendes or Banda Black Rio, Ana Mazzotti or Marcos Valle, samba and bossa are part of my life. With my father in Azymuth and my grandfather Zezinho who played with Sergio Mendes, I have always been surrounded by the samba beat!"
As the name suggests, 'Equilibira', is the perfect mix - classic Brazilian songwriting combined with contemporary production -- guaranteeing this album appeal for both established Far Out fans as well as those people into the sound of 'Nu-Brazil'. "I think that this is the first contemporary Brazilian album of the last 15 years that measures up to the classic Brazilian albums of the past" adds producer Venom. We hope you'll agree with him!
