We love when generations collide, and that’s exactly what’s going on here with guitarist Fabiano Do Nascimento’s debut record on Now Again, Dança Dos Tempos. Pairing up with the heavyweight legendary percussionist Airto Moreira, the two, generations apart in years form together as one to give us a dose of folkloric Brazilian music. The gifted Do Nascimento is joined by Moreira’s long time drummer Ricardo “Tiki” Pasillas on trap drums as well as Kana Shimanuki, who shares vocal duties. The record combines the virtuoso of Do Nascimento’s guitar, and the shared spirit of Brazilian music with the undeniably talented Brazilian percussionist. Light and airy, this record showcases the Do Nascimento sound through original tunes as well as select cover songs from Pascoal and Powell. Sharing a camaraderie that spans their ages (Do Nascimento is barely 30, Moreira 75), this record marks the second foray into Brazilian music for the label following a record from Seu Jorge and Almaz. Recorded live with no overdubs and straight to analog 2″ tape, these songs were sparingly mastered. No stranger to the wonders of Brazilian music, Egon from Now Again has traveled far and wide, this time stopping in Brazil to bring the magic of this beautiful music to the masses. The song “Dança Dos Tempos”, a wonderfully arranged and funky in its own way side, is a perfect match between these two musicians, carrying on Brazilian music traditions together despite their age differenc. It’s a great match, and those who have dug deep for Brazilian tracks, will appreciate this injection of the old style here in 2015. The music is full of 60’s and 70’s experimentalism and mesmerizes you all the way through. Have a listen to the song below.
