about

When I was around 14 years old, I heard Sergio Mendes for the first time. Not only did I immediately fall in love with Brazilian Music, but felt so much that this was the type of music that I had always been searching for… as if I had already, somewhere in a lifetime, been immersed in this incredible rhythmic, melodic, harmonic, and poetic music. The colorful culture… the tropical land… the spirit of happiness in Brazil was always a mirage, a conscious and unconscious dream that I was trying to grasp. A few years ago, Orlando and I met; music brought us together and together we made this album that is really the beginning of much ahead. I thank most of all Orlando, my husband and musical companion, for being a big part and helping me discover and realize my dreams, and for all the love, support and spirit he has given me. And this is what this album captures – the spirit and love behind the music among all the musicians and people involved in this work.

***

Numa excurssão de lazer na praia dos alunos da Escola de Artes da Carolina do Norte, alguém me deu um violão para tocar. Segurando o instrumento comecei a tocar canções de rock nas quais ninguém presto muita atenção. Porém uma garota se aproximou e pergunatndo se eu era brasileiro, pediu em Inglês: - Toca uma música brasileira? Então me senti envergonhado pois eu só tocava rock, mas com dificuldade cantei e harmonizei metade da canção Corcovado, de Jobim. Naquele dia me toquei de que trilhava o caminho errado e passei então a estudar, pesquisar e a amar a música e a cultura do nosso país. Este disco foi a conclusão de um periodo de sete anos anos e meio que passei nos Estados Unidos estudando música clássica, aprendendo e tocando música brasileira. A nossa banda Minas viajou muito se apresentando em diversos estados e sempre recebendo as melhores reações do publico. É interessante notar que os músicos, com excessão do baterista paulista Manoel, no instrumental Sambawalk, são todos americanos e todos entusiastas e amantes da música brasileira. A propósito, o nome da garota que se aproximou de mim naquele dia azul de sol, se chamava Patricia King.

about

Minas Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Minas (Orlando and Patricia) takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, from ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Folk coasting on the subtle coolness of a Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistling. ... more
