Grandeza, the debut album by Sao Paulo's Sessa, points to new, subtle directions for modern Brazilian music – a deep, minimalist, almost insinuated use of the rich textures that define the songwriting history of Brazil, one which Sessa now joins among its most promising new voices. His songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sensual lyrics in the vein of Caetano Veloso, and the melodic flourishes of Antônio Carlos Jobim. However, the music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the bareness of Leonard Cohen, with touches of tropicalia, psychedelia, and the mystic jazz of Moondog. Recorded in various places in São Paulo, Brazil. Produced by visionary guitarist Yonatan Gat. Confirmed for a 17 date North American tour (with stops in Canada) and a full national publicity campaign in both Canada and the U.S. For a taste check out the video for "Flor do Real" here :
