about

‘One of the year’s most original and exhilarating listens’ PITCHFORK (BEST NEW MUSIC)

‘A daring, experimental album . . . magnificent’ THE SUNDAY TIMES

‘A devastating, late-career, vanguard-pop masterpiece’ THE NEW YORK TIMES

'World album of the year' MOJO MAGAZINE

‘Surely the Brazilian album of the year’ THE GUARDIAN 5/5 ★★★★★

+++++++++++

Septuagenarian Brazilian music icon Elza Soares teams up with the cream of São Paulo's avant-garde musicians for an album of apocalyptic, experimental samba sujo (‘dirty samba’) that tackles the burning issues of 21st century Brazil: racism, domestic violence, sex and drug addiction.

Over a sprawl of distorted guitars, squalling horns, taught strings and electronic shards, samba is savaged by rock ‘n’ roll, free-jazz, noise and other experimental music forms as Elza sings, spits and screams tales of a life in Brazil that is anything but a tropical paradise.

A true legend of Brazilian music Elza has an incredible musical oeuvre that stretches back over seven decades mixing samba with jazz, soul, funk, hip hop and electronica, whilst her life-story is a rags-to-riches-to-rags rollercoaster of triumphs and tragedies that has made her a voice for Brazil’s repressed female, black, gay and working class populations.
