A Arte Da Infelicidade

Hilton Raw

 

Iím not going to be able to provide much info on this record because all liner notes are in Portuguese. No matter-donít let that stop you from pursuing this cd. This is Brazilian pop music thatís simultaneously traditional and anti-traditional. In other words, light but heavy, lilting but dissonant, pleasant but distancing, romantic but impersonal. A small part of it is boring techno music, but the large majority is often intriguing, surprising and refreshingly off-kilter. For darn sure itís a keeper. Brazilian pop just got way more diverse in my estimate. Probably yours, too.
