Sem Nostalgia

· by Michel Rondeau

With no nostalgia (hence the title) and no shame, Lucas Santtana has achieved one of the most successful fusions of the samba and bossa nova sensibility with alternative and electro-rock energy, notably by taking advantage of the possibilities offered by recording software and samplers. Alternating inventive instrumental pieces — including the well-named “Super Violao Mashup”, where he joyfully and irreverently remixes the guitars of masters like João Gilberto and Dorival Caymmi — and somewhat softer songs, including three superb ones in English, co-signed by Arto Lindsay. As for the guest musicians who come to support the Bahia artist, they constitute a true who’s-who of the rising Brazilian generation: Curumin, Do Amor, Buguinha Dub, Regis Damasceno… Solid.
