Cândida is a great promisse and reality from Brazil! Recently pointed as “Artist of the week” by TuneCore, many times listed in Top 10 Charts of World Music by ReverbNation in New York, Candida has received many signals of her potential artistry. Huge classical background, Candida is a singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger – a real creative modern artist, that dialogues with images, sound, texts and culture. Based in New York and Brazil – Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, São Paulo, Candida shows in her original work a summary of the modern Brazilian Culture, together with her team of musicians and producers – the Grammy winner Alê Siqueira, and Deeplick, one of the biggest DJ/Producers from Brazil. A new sound from Brazil that definitely came to stay and bright in the scene of world music!
“Cândida” has many meanings, concepts and features.
Produced by Ale Siqueira, an international award winning producer, these three singles are part of this debut for Cândida - the artist and the work that this EP revealed in 2011.
Surprising many who have followed her classical career, Cândida brought to light her most Brazilian trend - with creativity, swing and beauty. Here, she writes, sings, plays, arranges and directs.
In her own songs, composed with friends in Bahia and Rio, in theaters and ghettos, unveil a new scene for what seems the refined and seductive bossa nova on the first track, but soon you change your mind. On the second, a dancing polka-xote-reggae takes us to a blue dream which journeys through the ocean of Africanism of the third track, where the congo, ijexá, and embalar, rythms from Africa, rock the ancient song for the Great Water Goddess.
Smooth and communicative compositions, which seems that we were born listening to, while they have arrangements that take us by surprise all the time, with pianos, clavinet, hammond, pifes (a kind of Brazilian flute), bassoon, tires and lots of percussion. A wealth of tones, electronic polyphonies and an impeccable sonority. Wonder! Recorded and mixed in blessed studios, like Carlinhos Brown’s and Guilherme Arantes’, two great Brazilian musicians. And this sweet, warm and present voice, as well as her hands over the keys, could only be from someone who has a name that reminds us of “candies”.
