Once again showing our passion for all the imaginable ways of understanding pop and also for Brazilian music, Elefant Records is releasing the debut album of one of Brazil’s most promising artists, Flávia Muniz. She is one of those characters who breathes life into everything around her; when you know about her life and you know her, it confirms the beauty that her songs transmit even more, if that’s even possible. Her first album, “Descalços Sobre A Terra”, is a marvelous and clear example of Música Popular Brasileña, rich in rhythms, harmonies, and arrangements, which pays its debt to the great classics of Rio.
The album is full of personality, a great homage to the roots of Brazilian music, to the country’s classics, sifted through Flávia Muniz’s palette with joy, letting it soak in other, diverse influences, but above all it has that sing-songy voice that is slippery and playful, so typical of her and so delicious. She is releasing her first and wonderful album on Elefant Records, but, since it couldn’t be any other way, with her heart looking towards Rio.
