Casa Brazil & Pandemic present Sessa (AfroBrazilian Guitar)

Uploaded by Pandemic Pgh
A long-time fixture of both North American and Brazilian music scenes – either as a collaborator with New York guitar legend Yonatan Gat or as co-founder of São Paulo psych-funk combo Garotas Suecas – Sessa at long last debuts his solo work. Sessa’s songs are sung in the vain of Caetano Veloso with melodic flourishes not unlike those of Arthur Verocai and Tom Jobim, however, the music gets a deliberately minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music. Sessa performs solely with female background vocalists and Afro-Brazilian percussionists
