|ULLA HAESEN RIO - SO VIM MATAR A SAUDADE Limited Vinyl LP
Singer and guitarist Ulla Haesen's recording, 'Rio - Só Vim Matar a Saudade', fuses the talents of three renowned Brazilian musicians - Kiko Freitas, Lula Galvão, Nelson Faria - with some of Europe's finest - Decebal Badila, Alfonso Garrido, Jesse Milliner, Francesco Petrocca, Gabriel Pérez, Jürgen Schuld and Hendrik Meurkens.
The Portuguese word saudade means to "long for something", the melancholic feeling of missing a place or person. Ulla, consumed by a decade-long ardor for Brazilian music, travelled to Rio to meet, study, and work with some of her heroes. "I wanted to breathe the air where the music is composed and meet legendary artists like Lula Galvão. It was magical to hear this music in its home territory."
There's a sparkling line-up of gorgeous compositions - including contributions from Ivan Lins, Marcos Valle, Joyce Moreno, João Bosco, Ronaldo Bastos, Nelson Faria (who penned the title track) and Toninho Horta and it was masterfully recorded by Klaus Genuit.
