From the album Levanta Poeira (compiled by Tahira)
Renata Rosa is a contemporany artist that blends sounds of the northeast area of Brazil in a very unique way. On “Brilhantina” her indigenous influenced voice fits wisely to the Samba de Coco rhythms. Its´s an outstanding track from the beginning to the end and a good example of how powerful and bass-heavy percussion-driven music from Brazil can sound these days. Renata Rosa manages to present Brazil’s musical roots in a modern guise, celebrating widely unkown facets of Brazilian music culture.
