We are now over 50% of the way to our Kickstarter goal for the ‘A Guide to the Birdsong of South America‘ album! Already two artists (Lulacruza and Tremor) have been revealed alongside the birds and their inspiring songs (the Critically Endangered Cucarachero de Nicéforo and the Endangered Cardenal Amarillo respectively).
So, now we move from Spanish speaking South America to the country of the moment, Brazil, to present artist number three. This is also a bumper edition with two birds for the price of one 😉
The Artist – Psilosamples
Psilosamples, otherwise known as Zé Rolê, is an artist born and raised in the small town of Pouso Alegre from the state of Minas Gerais. His childhood growing up surrounded by nature, vegeatation and a sense of calm permeates into his music. His sound is innovative and fresh, splicing Brazil’s rich musical heritage, from cantigas and forró to Tropicalia with worldy influences like IDM, techno or electronica. Each song is a journey, traverssing rhythms, sounds and speeds with ease. A young producer that has found his niche and is making 21st century Brazilian music like no-one else. Expect big things from this young man.
