CD Review: Nadia Cancila - E Tarde

Braziliam music is popular all around the world, the music of composers like Jobim, Moraes and Buarque can be heard in countries as far as Japan. But some countries have a special affinity for this kind of music, Italy is one of those countries.

There are several Brazilian and local singers living in Italy dedicated to spread the wonderful music of Brasil.
Nadia Cancila recorded her most recent album E Tarde in Rome, Italy. Cancila demonstrates a strong command of the Brazilian music language in her delicate interpretations of the sambas “Capim” by Djavan, Chico Buarque “Sem Compromisso”, and Ivan Lins “Essa Mare”, and “Roda Baiana”, maybe the best track on the release.

Cancila soothing voice truly shines on the Caetano Veloso bossas “Meu bem meu mal”, “A Certeza da Beleza”, and the mpb “Petala” by Djavan.

E Tarde also includes two excellent bossas by the bassist/keyboardist/arranger Alfredo Paixao, “E Tarde” and “Apague essa luz” and the beautiful ballad “A viola e a voz”.

Tracks: Capim, E tarde, Essa Mare, Meu bem meu mal, Mistérios, Roda Baiana, Apague essa luz, Petala, A certeza da beleza, A viola e a voz, Sem compromisso

Musicians: Nadia Cancila – voice, Alfredo Paixao – bass, keyboards, percussion, Hans Vroomans – piano, Nelson Faria – guitar, Fabio Charvet – drums, Israel Varela – drums (4,6,11)
